Sailing Shelter Island
One of the great things about Shelter Island on San Diego Bay is the sailing vibe. Take a stroll down Shelter Island Drive and you’re totally immersed in sailing. The main drag is surrounded by marine businesses, and you can easily walk from sailmakers to riggers to boat yards. Bars such as Fiddler’s Green are full of half models. San Diego Yacht Club almost always has an event leaving their docks, and there’s quick access to San Diego Bay and the ocean. And just a little farther over the horizon is Mexico.
You can travel pretty far in search of great sailing but, if you’re in California, there’s plenty right nearby. Cruisers heading to Mexico in the fall or returning north in the spring always spend some time on Shelter Island or nearby Harbor Island. When you pick up your copy of the December issue, you’ll find stories of both the Lipton Cup and Masters regattas, both hosted by SDYC, as well as a wrap-up of the 24th Baja Ha-Ha which always starts off the tip of Shelter Island.
