When foreign vacationers arrive in California for the first time, many are surprised to learn that the whole coastline is not blessed with the hot, sunny weather they’ve seen on Bay Watch. Sadly, here in the Bay Area, typical conditions are more likely to inspire you to wear two layers of fleece, than a skimpy bikini. But there are exceptions. And with any luck, this weekend will be one of them — Saturday is supposed to be particularly sunny, with clear skies and zero chance of precipitation.

With moderate winds predicted for the Saturday and Sunday, we suggest you load up the cooler, shanghai a crew of close friends, and get out on the water to offset the stresses of your work week. We’ll see you out there!
