Wink Greetings

After nearly two years from buying our yacht in San Francisco and commuting between Australia and USA every other month, we finally find ourselves in the fortunate position to be here getting her ready for cruising.I have used the past two years wisely getting to know the area and the people but feel I will require further local knowledge as the works continue.
I trust I can depend on the forum members for assistance should I and when I require it?

Re: Greetings

Howdy and Welcome Aboard the Forum Saffa!

The Bruce Roberts 55 is a popular big cruiser.

Here is my #1 tip for new members of this forum:

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the green menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. Note: this is different from using the regular forum search box or field.

Here is more information that will tell you about sailing on SF Bay.

San Francisco Bay is one of the best places on the planet for sailing, so I have no doubt you will find any kind of challenge or fun you seek there. I sailed there for years and enjoyed it very much. Have fun!

Since you are new to sailing SF, and I assume you would like to learn good places to sail, I will give you a link to a guide that is concise but helpful. It shows and tells with some good insights. It even has an itinerary for a day sail around the bay with tips on direction to go and places to see and things to do. I hope it gives you a good start. It was published by "Latitude 38" the local sailing rag (magazine) that has long been a source for good stuff related to sailing in the SF Bay.


Good luck on your sailing adventures and have fun!


Ahoy All Sailors! I love traditional sailboats of all kinds (e.g. gaff rigged, schooners, cutters, smacks, woodies, etc.). See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details.
