The Spectacular Thanksgiving Sailing Weekend

As we closed out the month with a spectacular Thanksgiving weekend, we hope many took advantage of #bluefriday to #optsailing and took some photos for our November Sailagram coming out in the next week or so. There were four beautiful sailing days this past long weekend, so send in a couple of your best shots to [email protected].

These two boats enjoyed Friday’s stunning, though low-wind, conditions.

The monthly Sailagram features shots of California sailors sailing up and down the coast or wherever they might be over the course of the last month. A sampling of snapshots from the current, about-to-be-replaced October Sailagram are featured below.

If you were out this past weekend (or anytime in November) send photos we can include in the November Sailagram to be posted in early December. It’s always great to include boat name, boat type and homeport plus the names of your smiling crew or kangaroo.
