Sail for Newbies (and everyone else too) - Sunday Morning

  • April 7, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

On Sunday, we will most likely expore the Cityfront, or do an "Island Tour" type of a sail - around Alcatraz and Angel Island through Raccoon Strait and back again.  We will stop for lunch at Ayala Cove or McCovey Cove depending.

After our orientation talk, we will decide on our destination based on time and tide, and the experience level and goals of the group as a whole.










I expect that we will be out for four or five hours.











We will experience many different wind and sea conditions and try all the points of sail.  You may participate in the sailing of the boat as much, or as little, as you desire.

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 wear non-marking soled shoes.

I have ginger ale and bottled water on board.  Please bring a snack to share and whatever beverage you prefer.











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 one-hour orientation to get you familiar with the boat and safety procedures prior to our departure.

Your forty-dollar donation will help to defray costs.  If you have any questions about this, or anything else, please give me a call, or email me.

We have had some incredible outings in the past, so please check out some of the previous "Newbie" Meet ups:

OK, let's go sailing and have some fun.

    It was a great day, was not cold at all. I could not ask for a better Captain , crew or luxury ship. I had a great time and hope to more sails on this fine yacht.
