Clipper Cove Reportedly Cleared of Derelicts

From today's 'Lectronic Latitude, comes word that Treasure Island's Clipper Cove in San Francisco Bay is, at last, cleared of all derelict vessels.

* * *

" 'The last boat is gone!' read an email sent last week from Mirian Saez, Director of Operations for Treasure Island. Unfortunately, we received it the day after the April issue of Latitude 38 went to press — too late to change the Sightings piece on Clipper Cove stating that only one derelict was left in the anchorage."

* * *

To read the rest of the story, go to:

Latitude 38 - 'Lectronic Latitude (scroll down to "All Clear in Clipper Cove")

well, yeah, this is a good thing except that a fair number of the boats that were being moored there have migrated over to Richardson Bay, which is bursting with derelicts at this point.

my wife and I went out for a spin in our sea kayaks after one of the bigger storms this winter, and were shocked to see three of these boats up on the rip-rap over in Tiburon, while another six at anchor were either swamped or sunk.

bottom line is that some of the primo anchorages in SF Bay are still clogged with derelicts.

You just wait until I get home. I am gonna plug up the anchorages awee bit more! Just kidding about that, but I will be looking forward weekends on the hook on the bay again. Some of my most memorable nights were Ayala Cove on a mooring.......i2f

If you've been away for awhile, you'll be shocked at Ayala Cove.. They've put in new balls and are charging a pretty high price for them.. I tried to go in a couple months ago while in the bay and ran aground on the way in..
was really surprised to read awhile back about a guy that had dropped his hook at Clipper Cove and had the intention of leaving it there as a perminent fixture and said it was his right to use the anchorage to store his boat.. his story arose after the Coast Guard found his boat adrift around the bay bridge... seems someone had cut it lose, or his anchor rope had worn through..

Clipper Cove is a great place to anchor. When I was there it was always a contest to see if you could be early enough to find a spot to anchor for lunch. The traffic noise from the near-by Bay Bridge is a nuisance.
When entering Clipper Cove stay well to the north and watch your depth sounder as there is a shollow bar that extends, south to north, out acrossed the Cove. When you get past this shollow area there is a srong possiblity that you'll catch one of two underwater cables with your anchor. It's always entertaining as everyone waits to see who the unlucky boata are.
If you're the unlucky one, just loop a dockline around the cable when you get it near your bow and disengage the anchor before letting one end of the line loose.

It's been 8 years since I sailed into Ayala, or Clipper. We will be sailing into the bay this July. It's not the Bahamas, but it is home........i2f
