Happy 2020 from Merci Crew! Fireworks from San Francisco.

Merci headed home from a surprisingly beautiful day on the Bay! We left in light wind and had a pleasant trip under the eastern span of the Bay Bridge. T-shirt weather in November.

Fleet Week!

Merci’s last sail of the summer. Get ready for Indian summer! Fleet week ahead. ⛵️ 🌞 ✈️

BeauCoup is ready for service to the shore at Angel Island tomorrow. Have a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend!

Good morning to all sailors out there... You are late!!!!

Getting disqualified is disappointing. Wrapping the start bouy, line and anchor, embarrassing. Not wrapping a line in the prop, fortunate. Learning about current and drift, priceless.

Deep Cleaning at Merci. Look what we found!

Minding the Prosseco. Cheers everyone.

Mind your Prosseco! 🍷!

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.
