Key Sailing, Sarasota's Longest-Running Sailboat Charter

Key Sailing is the longest-running sailboat charter in the history of Sarasota and Manatee counties, with the only sailing yacht (the 41’ Key Breeze) in the City of Sarasota, and the only company in Sarasota history hosting guests as a couple sailing at the helm together.

Captain Tim Solomon and First Mate Jan Hamel Solomon are in their fourteenth year at the helm, which makes them the longest-running sailing charter couple in our community history, even without considering the fact that they learned how to sail together as a couple 45 years ago at Sarasota High School.

Key Sailing is in the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame and has received the Trip Advisor Travelers Choice 2020 Award for the top ten percent of attractions globally.

Tim and Jan purchased Key Sailing from Tom and Sally Reed, who owned the business eleven years and still sail with the Solomons annually.
