About Curlew

Captain Bob Harrison has held a USCG Masters License for twenty years, and has owned sailboats continuously for some 50 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 40 years on the waters of Southern California, Bob has sailed the waters of the Pacific North West, raced on San Francisco Bay, and spent a few summers early on exploring Lake Ontario where he learned to sail.

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.

Captain Bob is also Licensed by the California Cemetery and Funeral Board and holds a Cremated Remains Disposers permit.
