huh? ahhh! Got it. IMHO, if you need a break from the AB and want to sail in warmth, go to FL. If you really want to improve and push your boat handling skills in more breeze, tides, currents, etc... go to SF... I'm biased. I used to live and sail in the Bay Area. When you're not sailing, SF is just a great place to tour around. Much much much to see and do... and eat.
