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 😉
