Where Were You on Opening Day?

When the sun is shining and the breeze is up, it’s easy to make new converts to the sport of sailing.

"Yee-hah, we’re having some fun now!"

On San Francisco Bay, it’s rare to have both breeze and sun-tanning weather on the same day. But Opening Day (yesterday) had it all — an ideal day to introduce new sailors to our sport. 

Hundreds of boats of all types plied Bay waters yesterday, in what we think of as an all-inclusive celebration of fun on the water. If you were out there, we’d love to hear about it. So email us a few lines about your experience, along with a few of your best photos. Who knows, your thoughts and/or photos might end up in the magazine. In any case, the spectacular day was a splendid start to the summer sailing season. We’ll see you out there!
