Best marinas near Palo Alto, CA bay area?

I am looking for good marinas closer to work on the peninsula without the trek to Alameda, SF or Sausalito. After

sailing lessons, long term I'd like a place to berth a 40' sailboat.

Coyote Point or Oyster Point are probably your best bets

Not sure what's happening here. It was under construction and being opened in phases. Newest facility. Owner is a little more hand on than I like but it's new
Westpoint Harbor Marina |
WestPoint Harbor - Redwood City, CA

Might be full as a lot of boats went here when Pete's Harbor closed. Next to Sequoia Yacht Club
Redwood City Municipal Marina

I was under the impression they only had slips for residents of the condos right next to the marina but I might wrong
Bair Island Marina Berth | San Francisco Marina Berth

There's another one called Docktown but it's uncertain if it will be sold for development. It's pretty rundown. Others might say homey. :-)

If you really want to sail I'd recommend going to San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley, Richmond, or Sausalito. If you like the ocean go to Pillar Point by Half Moon Bay. Sure you may drive a little farther at 60+ mph but sailing at 7 knots from Redwood City is hours away from anywhere you'd really want to sail at. I just stayed there as a liveaboard.

Thanks! Right now I'm planning on lessons but with the challenge of waiting lists want to do more legwork in advance.
