Greetings from the SF bay

Hello All-

I'm just over 1 year into a complete obsession with sailing and have learned much from this site, figured it was time to join. I've lived in the Bay Area for 6 years prior to sailing, really wish I would have discovered it sooner!

I sail a '69 Santana 22 that I partnered with my GF with for $900 each, and the boat has proven herself at every test. It has brought more joy to our lives than we ever expected. I do a lot of singlehanding, and have a goal of competing in the singlehanded transpac '16 (prob not in the Santana though).

I plan to sail far and wide in the future and am a sponge for information if anyone in the bay area needs some crew.

Mike

G'Day Mike,

As a long ago SFB sailor let me welcome you to CF. Sounds like you have the disease pretty badly... no known cure, mate, so learn to live with it!! You have a great boat for the bay, IMO one of Gary Mull's best and longest lived efforts. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Jim

Welcome to Cruisers Forum Mike. Glad to see you and your girlfriend enjoying the Bay. You have to go up to the Delta sometime.

Re: Greetings from the SF bay

Hi Mike, I'm in SFBay also - the Santana at that age was just about bullet proof - since you say it's a 69 could you tell me the hull #? I owned #333 two times with 20 years in between... the ultimate boat for the bay! She'll take anything you get in the bay (though you might not cause SF Bay is like the worst of the best sometimes!!) and just keep going. Hope you take her to Angel Island and camp out a couple of times or over to Clipper or off Sausalito. Great boat - be safe!

Re: Greetings from the SF bay

A belated welcome to you! As David M mentions, you've got to check out the delta. While I'm a powerboat owner, I do sail and members of my yacht club and marina are mostly sailors. The delta has some amazing sailing.
