Well sorta but mostly motor, not sail up and done the rivers, sloughs, above Decker Island on the Sacramento river and Fishermans Cut on the San Joaquin. I pulled a 27 sailboat off the mud by Korth's Pirates Lair a couple of weeks ago. He said he was motoring up to Stockton when he got stuck. In the bays sail is used mostly but the rivers can get hairy with commercial ocean going coastwise tankers and frieghters going back and forth. There are lots of wide areas that look great for sailing but they may be only three foot deep or less this time of the year...chuckle....I almost hit a duck blind once on Grizzley Bay
