I’m reminded of Ben’s apt comment in a video of Hydroquest departing the Marquesas (and I quote) “Sorry we haven’t checked in with you… turns out there’re other things to do on land”. Haha, yup!
We sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge at 2pm on Monday August 28th, 2017!!!! What a feeling – whether you’re crossing oceans or sailing down coasts, landfalls feel pretty darn great.
We’re currently anchored off Sausalito, enjoying the spectacular view of downtown SF and gorgeous real estate on the surrounding hills. There’s much to see right here, so we’re in no rush to move on. We almost got kicked out of the Sausalito Yacht Club yesterday because we looked like such vagabonds before our showers, but Will produced his RVYC reciprocal card just in time.
Although we’ve hastened down here, we’re adopting a new cruising mindset from now on: GO SLOW. Kaiquest will be in the Bay area until at least the Spring of 2018 so we have lots of time to explore every nm. I hear you can even take your sailboat up river to Napa 😉

Welcome to SF. I will have to come and have a drink with you two end of September (off to Turkey Sep 8th and coming back Sep 24) …. hope you are still around then. Have tons of fun. ❤
Hi Tony – We are here on and off during the fall but yet – we’ll definitely figure something out! Cheers and safe travels!
Well done you two. We should connect you with our friend Joel Sorum on SV Campanrea. He’s in SF and just sailed back from Tonga via Hawaii. Heading back to Mexico in the fall. Also be sure to sail to the end of the bay where the SF airport is. There’s a great little marina there and the planes fly over all day and night. Really entertaining!
Thanks for the tip! And for the heads up about Joel… we will shoot him an email and hope to re-connect! Last saw him in Mexico in ’14 🙂
congratulations on reaching SF 🎉 how exciting!!! time to explore. love all the pics, keep them coming xoxo
So amazing I can’t even begin to imagine what it must feel like. Creating such amazing memories and I love that I get to hear about it.
