Summer Sailstice was quite breezy on the San Francisco Bay. Though the sun was shining, we received many reports of 30-knot winds. One relatively mellow area of the Bay was the Oakland Alameda Estuary. Sailors on the Estuary enjoyed a mild breeze, plenty of sun, and warm temperatures.
Ambassador Ros de Vries and crew sailed her Santa Cruz 27 Medusa up the Estuary to Clipper Cove, where they rafted up with other boats from Island Yacht Club. Clipper Cove was full of boats, and raft-ups from a few different clubs, all tied up to celebrate Sailstice. Ros has been a great ambassador this year, is a passionate sailor, and works really hard to contribute to and grow her community.
