Re: Phones Apps

Re: Phones Apps

All iPads that have cellular access (3G or LTE) have GPS. Wifi only iPads do not have GPS.

Re: I want to learn to sail in the Bay Area!

Cal sailing is a bit of a mixed bag. We went a couple times but decided we wanted our own boat. They do have open houses fairly regularly that are free and let you get an idea of what to expect.

Re: Lazy Jacks: Lov'em or Leave'em?

Re: Where can I park her?

Near the ferry building in SF there's a public dock. It's not very big and I think it's first come - first served but I think you can tie up for an hour or two. I think it's at Pier 1.5.

Re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?
