From Sausalito to Santa Cruz - Jan'12 - pics heavy
January 2012 i was on a business trip in SF and good friends of mine offered me to join their sail form San Francisco to San Diego. They are delivery captains (San Diego Captains) and have to deliver a Jen 40. Unfortunately i can join them only to Santa Cruz.
I was very excited. This was my first touch with boats and sailing.
At 05:00 we find the marina.
And the boat. Quick checks. LPG valve not working..
Without heating in winter ocean is not very*comfortable.
Nope, problem is not here.
Ok they found the issue. And fixed
5-6 days sailing needs good grocery shopping.
Ready to go.
Some floating houses.
I like Captain's office.
Heading to Alcatraz and San Francisco's piers.
Heading to Bay Bridge.
Under Bay Bridge we turn a round and heading to Golden Gate and Ocean.

Enjoyed the pictures . We sailed out of Sausalito for ten years. Not to rain on your parade, but even on a calm day, which it looks like it was, your delivery skipper took a VERY dangerous route through what used to be called the "south channel", no longer on the charts, ESPECIALLY during winter months. Just curious, was the line caught in the prop just free floating or was it attached to the boat?
