If you don’t know, Pelicans are lovely little 12-ft centerboard gaff-rigged sailboats designed by William H. Short and developed specifically for San Francisco Bay. If you can’t make it tomorrow, the program will be offered again on November 3 and 17. Email or call Madeline Eustis at (415) 797-2421 for more info and to RSVP.
