60The Great Vallejo Race—Upwind Both Ways?

The Yacht Racing Association held the Great Vallejo Race as the first of their big weekend regattas.

66Ryan Finn’s Solo Route d’Or

Ryan Finn, sailing solo aboard his 36-ft proa Jzerro, passed under the Golden Gate Bridge to finish an amazing adventure. Ryan sailed singlehanded from New York to San Francisco around Cape Horn on the 13,225-mile course called the 'Route d'Or', made famous by Gold Rush-era clipper ships.

70Cruising Northern California and Beyond

Here at latitude 37.77°, we have a reputation that there aren't many places to cruise outside of the Bay. Well, yes and no. Compared with other parts of the country and world, there aren't a ton of places to cruise or harbor hop along the long, windswept coast of Northern California.
