Make Sail Time in Buffalo

In the spring of 2016, a new sailing tour and private charter company launched at 284 Fuhrmann Boulevard Buffalo at the Outer Harbor. With a super successful initial sailing season under its belt, Make Sail Time is once again seeking waterfront adventurers to partake in another summer filled with wind, waves and full sails. 

In order to get the sailing program off the ground (and into the water), small business operators Mary and Rich Bennett commissioned the building of a brand new Beneteau sailboat. The investment began to pay off immediately, as the couple says that their inaugural sailing season programming was in high demand, with plenty of people looking to get out onto the water. “The most popular themes and reasons for evening sails include special occasion, date night, sunset sail, blues music sail, girls night out, mindful meditation, relax rejuvenate, history sail, silo lights sail, energize, team building, client night, treat yourself, sailing basics, take the helm, feel alive, and watch with wonder,” noted Mary and Rich, who are USCG Licensed Captains. 

Now, it’s time to recruit another fun-loving group of people who are hoping to get out onto the water this summer. In order to showcase a number of points of interest when it comes to sailing, Mary and Rich have created a video that visually demonstrates many of the reasons to join the crew for a sail this year. From fireworks shows at Canalside, to catching rays, to viewing the sensational sunsets on the water (literally), there’s no better time to hop aboard for a cruise with this professional and engaging crew.
