Curlew Charters, Inc. a California corporation was formed in June of 2002, preceding the July acquisition of the Schooner Curlew. Fulfilling a 10 year dream, Captain Bob Harrison set out to create a business that would not only allow him to share his love for sailing and the sea with others, but play a part in maintaining a historical vessel representative of the Classic days of Sailing. Additionally, Bob’s vision includes the decks of Curlew for team building and other personal and corporate growth workshops.
Bob has held a USCG Masters License for over twenty years and has owned sailboats continuously for some 45 years. Curlew represents the fifth yacht he has owned, and the third sailed in the Pacific. In terms of sailing experience, in addition to his 38 years on the waters of Southern California, Bob has sailed the waters of Pacific North West, raced on San Francisco Bay, and spent a few summers early on exploring Lake Ontario where he learned to sail.
