Hello from San Francisco Bay Area

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. I grew up in Southern California where I learned to sail and had a Catalina 27 for a number of years. Life got busy and I sailed infrequently on other people's boat in the years since. Now, 20+ years later, I'm living in the San Francisco Bay area (Marin county) and recently bought a 1989 Catalina 34. I'm enjoying my time back on the water, sailing around the bay.

I look forward to meeting and interacting with the community.

Thanks,
Dago

Welcome to the neighborhood, Dago! I have been so missing our Bay sailing. Are you still getting out?

Re: Hello from San Francisco Bay Area

Dago, welcome.


I'm the secretary of the C34 International Association. You're welcome to join us over on our C34 website, too. I do a bunch of different boating forums every day.


https://c34.org/bbs/index.php/board,11.0.html


The info on the C34 website will help you avoid reinventing the wheel.


I lived in SF from 78 to 16, sailed all over, bought our C34 in 1998.


Fair winds,



Stu

Thanks Gamayun. No, I haven't been out since the shelter-in-place order in mid March, but I think I may sneak out soon.
