Labor Day weekend,

10 August 2008 | Pillar Point Harbor
Labor Day in Half Moon Bay

With two new guests aboard we departed as early Saturday morning as the tides would allow only to struggle against terrible currents and weather to exit the Golden Gate. The seas were a steady 10-15 feet following swell that made for a less than nice ride down. As luck was with us, the weather turned and gave us a beautiful weekend in HMB.
The ride home was another tough start with 10 foot waves to the bow but as we made our way north the winds blew a perfect 20mph and the ocean settled down. We spotted a few dolphin and whales on the trip but I was not fast enough with the camera this time.
I want to thank everyone who made the trip to visit and share in my last San Fran sail.
There are pictures in the photo gallery and I will be adding some more as I collect them from others from the weekend. If you were ther and have a few you would like to share it would be my pleasure to post them.

Sailing San Francisco bay

25 June 2008
Time is ticking away for any of you that have ever wanted to sail on the San Francisco Bay. The boat is prepared and ready to go any day weather permitting. My latest date of departure for San Diego is September 20th. It is a little cold but there are many things to do here. The next opportunity will be in the Golfo de California. Check the calendar.

Sandbar Party

07 June 2008 |
Every month or two there is a negative tide that exposes a nice white beach in the bay just north or Emeryville Marina. The day started dismally but the sun finally prevailed. It is certainly worth trip.
