So the sailboats, especially large sailboats, have to sit out in the sun, which can become pretty unbearable unless you're out on the hook in a decent breeze.
I spend a couple weeks up in the Delta every summer, and it's a religious experience, but only because I'm able to jump into the water
every half hour or so when it's hot. And drink plenty of cold brew. As much as we love the Delta, it's always a bit of a relief to get back to the Bay area and have to don a sweater at night.
