Check In From S.F. Bay Area

Hello to the forum. I ply the waters of Northern California with a boat based in the Bay. Look forward to getting advice from the vast experience of those aboard the forum.

Silly self serving video of solo 400 mile ocean race:

Hey Brian welcome to CF...

My wife and I lived aboard in Alameda (Marina Village) before starting fulltime cruising!

Re: Check In From S.F. Bay Area

Nice to have a LongPac vet aboard. Redsky?

Unless I'm getting sloppy, we seem to be welcoming the sailor who took 4th overall in the singlehanded transpac last year.

I'm sure you'll have much to contribute to the forum. Welcome!

Re: Check In From S.F. Bay Area

Brian,

welcome aboard. I see you finished the Fiasco this weekend about 80 seconds ahead of us. Next time I'll have to swing by and tie a bucket to your keel on the way out

Welcome.

Re: Check In From S.F. Bay Area

We bought our boat in Alameda and really enjoyed the area while we were there for 7 months doing the first half of the refit. We're doing the second half while underway because it's COOOOOOLD there!
Welcome!
