Let's go sailing. We will sail over to Angel Island and have a picnic and Barbeque and then sail back in the afternoon. You are also welcome to go for a hike, bike or Segway ride. I will be grilling some seafood.
We will meet on Monday at 1000 hours at the Java House at Pier 40. Please be on time and do not bother the marina managers. Please bring my cell phone number with you in case you get lost, or are running late. You can park at the Pier 40 Visitor Parking, or out on the Embarcadero. The Giants are out-of-town on Monday, so parking should be easy. Let me know if you want me to get you a pass for the SB Harbor lot.
There is more info on parking here:
We will meet at 1000 and sail before 1100, returning at around 1600 hours, stopping for lunch. So, this is a full day on the water.
We will experience many different wind and sea conditions and try all the points of sail.
Please bring a sweater and a jacket for when it cools off. Bring foul weather gear and a PFD if you have them (I have some extras), and it is require for you to wear non-marking soled shoes.
You may participate in the sailing of the boat as much, or as little, as you desire.
I have ginger ale and bottled water on board. Please bring snacks to share and whatever beverage you prefer - No RED wine, blueberries, or other things that stain.
Willin' is a big, modern, safe, well-equipped, well-maintained yacht with full electronics and instrumentation. We will not be pushing her to her limits and we will enjoy a safe, comfortable sail. I will control the RSVP and waiting lists to ensure that we have a good mix of newbies and experienced sailors.
There will be a half-hour orientation to get you familiar with the boat and safety procedures prior to leaving.
Your forty-five dollar donation will help defray expenses.
Let's go sailing and have some fun.
