Re: Advice on SF Bay summer sailing

Sailed a Coronado 25 out of Sausalito in and outside the Bay for 10 years. Generally, the hotter it gets in the valley the more wind you will get, especially through the Gate. As you get further north or south it can ease some, but not always. Sugest you watch the forecasts carefully. Donlofland's advice is good, reef early. Genrerally, you will have all the wind you want and more in the summer time.
