Sailing buddies...

Today my friend of many years and historian of technology extraodinaire, Bruce Sinclair, joined me for a sail on the bay. What a gorgeous day, what a lovely variety of moments - with wind, without wind, with some wind, with quite a bit of wind.

We reached out the estuary, were becalmed below the Coast Guard Commandant's home on Yerba Buena Island, caught a lovely breeze to take us eventually all the way toward Sausalito to Raccoon Strait, drifted wing-on-wing down past Belvedere, Tiburon, and Kyle Cove, and then reached in a steady twelve knots across the back side of the "slot" and the lee side of Treasure Island to the mouth of the estuary once again.

Salud, with a dollop of Cruzon Single Barrel Rum and a brownie! It couldn't have been a better day messing about on boats.
