Re: San Francisco in January?

January is the off season in San Francisco insomuch that (unless it is storming) there is a noticeable lack of breeze. Bizarre, but if you take into consideration the wind chill factor, it is actually warmer in January than in July. Mid-winter is still a fine time to sail in the Bay – but you will leave thinking that all of our bravado about “nuclear” wind conditions is just a lot of hogwash.

For Chartering, Club Nautique is located in both Alameda and Sausalito. Spinnaker Sailing is in South Beach (next to the ball park). You could also book a seat on Adventure Cat, Ruby, or Bay Lady. I am sure that one of the “locals” here on Sailnet will be willing to help out also. January is a bit far off and I’d need to see the YRA and Encinal calendars (and consult the admiral) before I could commit. Try again closer to January.
