Take a Glimpse at San Francisco’s New Skyline

A new waterfront condo complex on San Francisco’s Cityfront?  Chris Monti was out for an early morning cruise a couple of weeks ago aboard his Whitehall rowing skiff Blanco Pelicano. As Chris was passing by the Sausalito Yacht Club, he caught this image of the light and the fog resculpting the sea and cityscape.

No matter how many times you sail the Bay you can’t help marveling at the spectacular setting. This must happen to many of us.

How many times have you been on the water when a slant of light, tendril of fog, shower of spray or some other natural element has altered your eye’s perception and sculpted an image that is out of the ordinary? Particularly at this time or year as the fall light casts its graceful shadows across the Bay.

We want to see what you see. Send us your best “resculpted land- or waterscape” photo at [email protected], or [email protected].

And while we’re on the subject of photos, remember to check out our monthly Sailagram feed for more photos of local sailors doing what they love — sailing!

Cruisers versus Turtle Bay Kids
The game is the way baseball should be played — pitches every 10 seconds, no strikeouts, women are always safe, and there are 25 to 35 people on the field, some of them making out or enjoying lunch.
Flying High
The splintering wood sound was followed by some high-pitched and high-volume human voices issuing sail handling instructions, dispensed with much urgency.
