While we’ve missed many of the regattas and organized events normally available on the Bay, we’re continuously reminded that they’re not the only reason we sail. The freedom and escape from the chaos ashore are two of the most alluring reasons to head out on the Bay. It’s what keeps people sailing and sending us stories of great days on the water. We were walking in Tiburon and saw boats rafted up in Belvedere Cove, boats tied up for ‘takeout’ picnics on the docks at Sam’s, and boats doing their disorganized best to avoid each other while just going for a shorthanded afternoon sail. Just doing random acts of sailing.
We have to admit being addicted to watching the drama of the Vendée Globe unfold and making sure it’s one of the first things we check upon waking up in the morning, and the last before turning in at night. But beyond that, we also love the simple stories such as the one we ran Friday of Dusty Adams sailing his Farallon 29 Ol’ Wayne out of Moss Landing, and the earlier story of Mike Pouliot sailing his Yankee 30 Emerald out the Gate to catch crabs. Did you get some pics of your sailing-escape this weekend? Send them our way.
