hey, welcome. I live in San Francisco
and sailed all my life. We have Santana 22 in the Marina and I still race
actively my Laser.
Great place to learn, plenty (too much in the summer) of wind
, fascinating location (especially the 6 months of summer: fog
in the morning, then blue sky, then 15-25 knots in the afternoon, then no wind
after 7 pm). Everyday is more of less the same.
My biggest problem is the cold water. You try to sail in a warm locale without your oilies, in places where you anchor
and just in the water with no worries or questions about whether or not you need to dip your toes first, then the neck, etc...
Lots of people sail in San Francisco
. Get into racing
with low key boats / beercan series every night in the summer. Friendly, low key, make some friends, learn a lot.
