We made to the Pacific Ocean!!!
Big waves, big sea lions, no whales.
Today we decided to take advantage of the tide and left the marina early. Quick stop at South Beach Yacht harbor and another at Pier 1.5 for breakfast. Then, out The Gate. We had some challenges coming back under the Golden Gate Bridge, but all in all a epic trip. 🌊 ⛵️ 🐳🐬

Friday evening at Ayala Cove. We left the marina around 5pm, Karl the fog was spilling through the Gate. We sailed under the fog and made it neatly to the cove. Mooring was a challenge, but we did it. And here is the result.

Our recent trip to SF this past Sunday

Sailboat Collides With Whale During San Francisco Bay Boat Race

We saw a whale on Saturday, south of the Bay Bridge. A pair of sailors competing in a boat race on San Francisco Bay this weekend got a little more that they bargained for.

About today’s adventure. You ask us why we like sailing so much? This is why:

On the way home. Wind enough to sail around Treasure Island. Looking forward for more favorable winds ⛵️

Merci passing by one regatta and through another on our way to Angel Island for an overnight. We’ve figured out our single line reefing. She’s more stable in higher wind. #SF #sailing

Today Merci received a visit from Max. We went for a quick cruise on the Bay.

Skipper Bunny and First Mate T scoping out the weather and getting ready to go. Strong winds, choppy conditions, chilly, tide ebbing.

We left the marina at 9am, motored under the Bay Bridge, raised our sales, passed through Raccoon Strait and headed to San Pablo Bay. We knew SP Bay was shallow and muddy but we made carefully to the Point San Pablo Yacht Harbor. Unfortunately, we were suppose to go to the Point San Pablo Yacht Club, a whole different place! So, we took Merci back to the SP Bay and quickly found out how shallow it is. We were aground, fortunately the tide was rising and after 1h we were on our way. We decide to go home and complete our 12h sail.

I’m still tickled pink about this!
