SF Bay can be surprising cool/chilly with the perstistent heavy winds they get.

California in general is lousy cruising country

The PNW is a two season venue.. summer and spall.. yes, much cloud and rain for 8 - 9 months of the year, but generally good summers, and unparalleled cruising grounds esp if you take into account BC's very reachable waters. Good Shelter, abundant anchorages and services it's hard to beat. Florida is more consistently 'nicer' but for me I find that a couple of weeks in the heat and humidity of the tropics and semitropics is wearing.. the moderate conditions here in the PNW are often a relief.
