About

Come aboard the Schooner Freda B in Sausalito for our distinctive once-a-month sail in honor of the full moon! Underway for a leisurely evening sail, take in the views of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, Marin Headlands, Alcatraz and Angel Islands, all while experiencing the magic of the moonrise.

Long Nights Moon - December

The Long Nights Moon is the full moon closest to the winter solstice when the nights are indeed at their longest. It's a pivotal time for reflection and change in preparation for the coming Spring. It's also when the full moon is above the horizon for the longest time, and at its highest point, since it orbits opposite to low winter sun.
