Re: Sailing Capital of the........
i love sailing the sf bay. i dont think it's the sailing capital of the world or country, and that's an advantage, i think.
prices are relatively low for slips and there is good availability, there are enough sailing clubs that you can pick from various criteria, and the wind is fantastic. depths are generally good, no lobster pots or other fishing hazards. there seems to be a good racing scene, though i am not familiar with it personally.
oh, and year-round sailing, depending on ones preferences, but either way no ice or snow.
and yet, not the center of the sailing world. oh well.
