How many of us are from San Francisco?

Howdy, I'm new to the site and it seems that a lot of people here on sailnet are from the east coast. I'm from Cali and i was wondering how many other people are from this area?


Steve

Oh, and if anyone here is, does anyone know of a good way to get my Cal27 from SF to Channel Islands without sailing it? I'm looking for a trailer but they're really hard to find. I haven't got a company to tow it yet either.

Welcome. I'm from Las Vegas but my cruising area is Channel isl. there are a few sailors on here from san frisco. personally i don't see why you wouldn't want to sail your cal to CH ISL. the boat is very capable of making that trip with ease. sailed mine from CI to Mexico on numerous occasions. that trip would take you about four days if you stop in ports for overnighting.

Welcome Steve...member Bestfriend hails from your port and we have contacted homeland security about another recent import! (inside joke)
Have fun and enjoy the forum.

Yeah, that was my first plan was to sail the boat down, but I've only been sailing for a 4-5 months (I'm 22 years old).

I thought the boat would be able to do the trip, its a 1973 Cal 27, in good condition with a strong 15 horse suzuki 4 stroke outboard.

I think I might still make the trip but I think it might be best if i brought someone a long that knew what they were doing on the open water considering I've only sailed my boat about 3 miles from its port.

Any suggestions??

Which is your priority? The Channel Islands or the trailer?

Welcome to sailnet. There's a fair number of Californians here, though they tend to be a subdued lot.

Stevyboy, I have been surfing this site, reading posts and articles since April. I took delivery of my first boat in June and I sail out of San Diego but live in Arizona. I am like you in that most of my trips are up to 3 miles offshore. I am contemplating a sail (rather than motoring) out to Catalina this summer. Perhaps I can tag along with another new sailor from my marina.

My priority is getting my boat to a slip somewhere in Oxnard or Ventura. My girlfriend is graduating from the California Maritime Academy this coming April and we've decided to move down to Oxnard to her parents new beach house. haha. lucky me. Anyways, So yeah I need to get my boat there sometime this summer, and once it's there I will make Channel Islands my priority

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It ain't called "Cali" and it ain't called "Frisco."

Try the "Boats" section of the SF craigslist. Always a few guys advertising their trailering services.
