Hello, My Name Is Joe...

Writing that line reminds me of my nametag this past weekend at the USCG Auxillary "About Boating Safely" course we took at the Sacramento Marina... The course was pretty basic, but I don't think you can overstress safety on the water enough.

I grew up sailing a Cal 39 with my father on Chesapeake Bay, and started getting back into sailing last summer when I bought a MacGregor 26M.

My girlfriend Ann and I have been having great adventures on the boat, sailing mostly in the California Delta. We have a slip on the Delta Loop, and sail Santa Clara Shoals on the San Joaquin River on most weekends.

We like to take our border collie, Molly, with us on the boat, and would like to start doing a little cruising this summer.

I've enjoyed reading the posts about SF Bay Area and the Delta here on SailNet. I'm primarily interested in learning more about cruising on the Delta (i.e. good layover spots and/or cool marina destinations).

I would also love to hear from anyone who has first-hand experience sailing on Franks Tract, which is a wide stretch of open water close to my marina but which, as I understand it, has a few hazards (a submerged tractor?) that should be avoided.

Thanks to everyone here for the wealth of information I've already taken advantage of, and that which I'm sure will come.

Cheers, Joe
