Hi all,

Been sailing for about 40 years in USA and Europe in small sailboats from Lasers to Beneteau 64.

Currently thinking of moving back to the SF Bay area and I'm looking to buy/rent a live on sailboat. Any tips would be welcome.

Cheers
Xerka

I wouldn't really class a Beneteau 64 as a small boat!!!

Welcome aboard, you'll meet a great bunch a folk around here!

Well I guess small is relative. They all handle easily and I've been on bigger boats/ships that require much more organisation for sailing them and I didn't do it.

thanks for the welcome

Xerka
