Owner:Captain Memo

Captain Memo was born to be a sailor! Literally hours after his birth in La Paz, Mexico, Memo was taken back out to his family’s 54’ Alden cutter, the "YoHoHo" which they sailed numerous times up and down the West Coast. Growing up in Sausalito, CA, Memo spent most of his early years growing up on, around, or in the waters of the San Francisco Bay Area. Starting with sailing small El Toros at the age of five, Memo has sailed extensively on everything from smaller and faster sailboats and catamarans, to larger ...racercruiser boats, along with some of the nicest old wooden boats on the bay over the years. Memo’s family was also very involved with the local boating community including being founders of Cass’s Marina, which was the first sailboat rental schools at that time in Sausalito in the 60’s and 70’s. Memo is also an accomplished professional race car driver, and has raced and driven some of the fastest cars in the world. Captain Memo holds a US Coast Guard 100 ton commercial captains license.

    What a perfect evening! Memo is great! We spent a fun evening celebrating one of our friends birthday on his beautiful boat, “Basic Instinct”. He is really informed and taught us a lot about sailing and the surrounding neighborhood. I’d highly recommend going with Capt Memo if you are looking to have some good time on the water!
