The Sail article said his insurance company paid the salvage costs (2500) and that it was a Santana 22.

He must have been a Beginner! He should have not even been that close to land! usually where a wave breaks means there is shallow waters or something....

Someone already noted it was over 33' deep there. I think the camera zoom and the sheer size of the Gate makes it seem like he is too close; those breakers were out deep. These kind of pictures convince me that I have no business in that kind of water in that size boat. I might have done exactly what he did. Yes, even seeing surfers I might assume that my displacement hull would not get surfed like that. I am definitely getting positive flotation in the small boat I am shopping for now.

Oddly enough, I might be out in the surf in an 11' boat this weekend. I am taking the Snark I fiberglassed with me to the beach. I will only take it out in the surf if the breeze is blowing toward land (as in NC, not Africa ) and I will stay just outside the sand bar.

Yup, Santana drivers gotta be made of sterner stuff to sail out on our Bay… A couple of months ago, a Santana 22 took 5th over-all in the Coastal Cup (San Francisco to Santa Barbara), a race in which there were several broken booms and two dismastings, including a Cal 40 that was using this as a tune-up for the TransPac. Now, if you want excitement, you ought to sail here when it’s windy. The following picture was from the Lightship I in ’06 (that’s going INSIDE of Mile Rock and the “Rock Garden” mind you). Winds were in the mid twenties to mid thirties on the way back from the light bucket and we got 27kts boat speed recorded in one 30 second burst although our average for that run was only 21kts.
