Hot, Pleasant Weekend Sailing on San Francisco Bay
By John Arndt | August 17, 2020 | San Francisco Bay | 1
If you were fortunate enough to have access to a sailboat this past weekend, San Francisco Bay was the place to be. Lots of people agreed, as the only-somewhat-cooler temperatures on the water and mostly gentle breezes inspired them to cast off the docklines. It was simply the best you could do to avoid the heat-wave swelter ashore.
Saturday was a pleasant prelude to a wild and electrifying Sunday morning, when rare lightning, wind and rain appeared across the Bay. We were happy not to have the tallest stick in the harbor that night. As far as we know, it all passed without too much damage on the waterfront before clearing again for another warm Sunday afternoon. The heat wave looks likely to continue right through next weekend. If you’re lucky, you’re one of those who don’t have to wait until next weekend to sail again. It will be nice all week long. If you were out and have some sailing shots to contribute, please send them to [email protected].
This November, Bay Area residents living in Ward #1 of the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) will have an important ballot choice to make for the Director of that ward. That seat was held for many years by Whitney Dotson
