About Sailing Yacht Rosie
Sailing Vessel Rosie is a 36' 1988 Freedom. Her distinctive freestanding mast, forward of where most masts sit, makes her easy to spot in a crowd. Her running rigging, with all her lines leading to the cockpit, plus her self-tacking jib make her lovely to sail. She's ocean-worthy and has sailed her around Vancouver Island multiple times.
The photo above was taken at one of the most beautiful places in the world—Princess Luisa Inlet, British Columbia, Canada.
Captain Amanda Lillet
Welcome aboard Sailing Yacht Rosie! I’m a US Coast Guard licensed captain with over 10 years experience sailing the waters of Puget Sound, the coast of Central British Columbia, and circumnavigating Vancouver Island multiple times.
I'm a teacher at heart and sharing Rosie—my boat and home—and my sailing experience is one of my greatest passions in life. Come aboard. Let me show you around! My crew and I look forward to personalizing your sailing experience.
