Hi, I was wondering about the situation for cruising up the delta
in October. I really like cruising guides
like they have up in Washington
, that show the marinas
, and anchorages
, but haven't found anything for the Delta
I'm curious if October is a good time to go. I'm new to the Bay Area and just passing through, but I love the hot dry climate of the Delta whenever I have driven in the area. It would be great to jump off and swim in some hot fresh water
I was thinking two weeks or thereabouts. Mostly anchoring
. Any suggestions? What is the first anchorage after leaving San Francisco
? How far before there is an anchorage and what is it called?
I found this, is this a good resource? It seems to show anchorages
Also, I am hearing there is a pretty severe drought going on right now in California
, how far up do you think I can make it? I'm fine motoring the whole trip if I need to.
October sounds like a great month as long as it's not too dry and shallow. I would think October would be good, less snowmelt, so less currents, hot like I like it, but not the extreme heat of summer.
Let me know any tips you have. Thanks.
