Golden Gate 30

I was wondering if anyone has sailed a Golden Gate 30 or it's sisters (Bodega 30, Bay Island 30, or Farallon 29)? What were your impressions?

Interesting design, I ran across them the other day and was curious about them.

Thanks!

Re: Golden Gate 30

If memory serves those are all Chuck Burns designs. Chuck worked for Gary Mull before going on his own. Chuck is a very good designer. Why don't you give him a call and ask him about the boats. He's in the SF area I think.

Re: Golden Gate 30

Thanks, Bob.

I was a little nervous about calling him, but I eventually did and he was very nice. He had good things to say about the build quality that Odyssey used, so that's good.

If all goes well, we will be transitioning from an Alberg design to the GG30, so i was a little curious how their sailing characteristics compare. There isn't a lot of information on them, though, so I guess I'll have to find out for myself at sea trial

Thanks!

So I hear. We looked at a Bodega 30 that the PO had sailed to NC from CA. There really aren't many of them on this coast, that I've found anyway.

Re: Golden Gate 30

Not all NA's are as arrogant and cranky as I am. I think they like to be called and recognized for their contributions to the sport. I had no doubt that Chuck would be happy to talk to you.

You might want to try to contact the sailing writer Ray Jason, I'm pretty sure his AVENTURA is a Golden Gate 30...

I met Ray about a decade ago in S Florida, I had to leave my boat at a marina for a bit, and his was in the adjacent slip... Great guy, got a quick tour of his boat, seemed like a sweet boat, to me...

He's a big fan of the design, he actually had to sell it at one point, and then was lucky enough to be able to buy it back again years later... I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any questions you might have...
