Fu Kyo Sails No More Sunsets.

Sad News.

Fu Kyo is awaiting an other Future.

Right now she is on the hard-stand getting some TLC and then looking for a new owner.

We would like to thank You All
for the wonderful Sunset Sails and loads of happy moments.

Over the last 3 years we have welcomed 
many people on board.
I think, for at least 95% of You 
it was the the first experience to go sailing.
And for an amazing 90% of You
it was the first experience to see Fukuoka City from the Sea.
Those facts make me a small & happy captain.

Proof of the Many Happy Moments.

The Beauty of Catamaran Sailing

Good Times Sailing
with Food, Wine and Friends.

It's blowing 10m/s hence a reefed jib and mainsail.
Still doing 8 knots and Fu Kyo is not heeling at all.

That's Shikanoshima, at Hakata Bay.

An other nice sunset as seen from the deck of Fu Kyo.

Sail the Sunset and Sleep the Night.

Vicky and Tsubasa joined Fu Kyo to
Sail the Sunset
and to have a good experience sleeping the night on board.

Amazing neh!

This is what they wrote at TripAdvisor:

My wife and I are on a 10day vacation and after reading great reviews about Fukuoka Sunset Sailing, we decided our first stop will be this.

What an amazing experience it was. The ride was smooth, the wind was refreshing, the sunset was amazing and on our return we saw the night view of the port including the colorful illuminated ferris wheel and the lit up chapel.

We also stayed overnight on the Sailing Catamaran which includes shower with hot water, beds and a kitchen! 

I would like to say big thanks to the Captain Yap and crew member Rick who made this trip a memorable one. We now have interest in sailing and we hope to sail you soon in the future!

Thank you Tsubasa and Vicky.

Indeed, hope to Sail you Again.
