Gorgeous sailing day out in the bay

I just had to share it. I am walking around at work with a big grin on a Monday. We went out yesterday with a few friends, my son and my wife. Excellent father's day gift for me.

SF bay was as good for sailing as it will ever be. Temperature at 80's, and a steady ~15 knot breeze. We unfurled the genoa fully (I think I have a 150%, way too much for here in general, at least in summer). Here is a little video my wife put together:

We set out from the Redwood City. We wanted to go past the San Mateo bridge. But both the wind and the tidal current was against us in a very narrow seaway. We beat our way very near to the bridge but had to turn back to get to the marina at slack time. Tacking every few minutes in a 50' cruiser is a lot of work.

Nice!

I visited SF last year and then went to Sausilito. I need to live there.

Nice..I was out there Saturday Night. You should have seen the sunset. Wind reversed on the way back, of course...actually had to tack back up the darned channel. Typical Redwood City...tack out, thinking a nice run back, wind reverses, tack back.....

I get a good view of the sunset from my slip. I agree it was especially a nice deep red on Saturday. We weren't that late to head back so we had a smooth run. Next time, I am motoring further up the channel so I can make it past the bridge, or go out with the ebbing current.
