Boat Show Revelry
Strictly Sail Pacific couldn’t have been held on a more beautiful weekend — perfect for viewing boats in their ‘natural habitat’, so to speak. Attendees to the four-day show took full advantage of free sailboat rides, deeply discounted gear and services, and absolutely stunning weather.
Many of those who came on Friday stuck around after the show closed for Latitude 38‘s Baja Ha-Ha, Pacific Puddle Jump and Delta Doo Dah Reunion Party. We couldn’t begin to guess how many people stopped by to claim their free beer and wine, but we can tell you that the Latitude staff developed serious ‘bartender elbows’ — which required liberal doses of our own medicine — from so much pouring and keg pumping!
While Strictly Sail is now just a warm memory, it was a great jump-start to the sailing season, which officially opens this Sunday with Opening Day on the Bay. This year’s theme of "Building Bridges" will undoubtedly spark some creative entries in the boat parade, which starts around noon and runs from Crissy Field to Pier 39.
