CONTINGENCY IS CAPTAIN ONLY
S/Y CONTINGENCY - Captain Aaron Sale
Aaron Sale grew up sailing and racing along the Columbia River bordering Washington State and Oregon until moving to the Hawaiian Islands to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations and a Masters in Crisis Management. Upon graduation, he took a“gap year” to work as a professional surf and windsurf instructor while also acting as a lead kayak guide for a small water sports company in the small town of Kailua, Oahu. In a short time, the company became uniquely successful and as acting head instructor and PRassociate, Aaron was featured on the Travel Channel, MSNBC and Telemundo as well as inflight programs on both Hawaiian and Japan Airlines.
He took a rare opportunity to move to the United Kingdom to train with the Royal Yachting Association where he earned his RYA/MCAYachtmaster and worked up to instructor status in the challenging waters in southern England. He has since worked all over the Mediterranean, Caribbean and both U.S. coastlines as an instructor and captain and loves to blend the charter experience with opportunities for learning.
His favorite sailing grounds include New England, Hawaii,Greece, Turkey, Croatia and the British Virgin Islands. As a long-time waterman, he is always eager to share the experiences that are unique to living and sailing aboard a luxury sailing yacht.
Aaron’s many credentials, such as, USCG licence, MCA/RYA YachtMaster Offshore, MCA/RYA Cruising Instructor, PADI Open Water Dive Certification, and STCW ’95 Safety Training Certificates,attest that guests will be in safe hands with Aaron Sale as their captain!
CONTINGENCY accommodates up to 6 guests (family only) in 3 cabins.
The Master cabin has a queen size bed, shower and toilet. 2 Guest cabins forward have individual access to a shared shower and toilet. One cabin has a double bed. The other has upper/lower singles.

July/August 2015 (Montag Charter)
This trip aboard Contingency will be as memorable for thelocations we visited as for all the laughs and good times we had along theway! Aaron-thank you for yourhospitality and friendship; you and Patty will be well compensated for yourroles in co-founding “Schmoogle!” We may not have watched Jaws in the Vineyard as planned, but our spotting of the blue moon, the bike ride to Cisco Brewery and the impromptu, front row anchoring for the Newport Jazz fest made the trip truly memorable!
Fantastic! Beautiful Boat! Enjoyed the Vineyard andNantucket and secret hidden coves near Wood’s Hole. Aaron is the BEST! Captain, Crew and Gourmet Chef! Not so good at Monopoly, but agood game was played. The trip was justlovely. Ahoy and Good Sailing-
We had a SPECTACULAR time! Thank you so much for sharing theboat with us. You are a very capable anddelightful captain.
