Following a light wind sail to Richmond we find ourselves tied up to Svendsen's dock on a very warm Sunday afternoon. This aint no Oakland Yacht Club! View from Svendsen's Dock Before we left Everett, Bob Doyle performed a rig inspection for our upcoming trip. During the inspection he noticed the upper halyard swivel on … Continue reading Pellucidar Spends Some Time In The Yard…..
We left Pier 39 and the Sea Lions and motored across the bay to Grand Marina on the East side of Alameda Island. This is where Mo would catch her ride back to Washington. Grand Marina is across the estuary from Coast Guard Island. It’s well protected with the exception of a few wakes from … Continue reading San Francisco – Part 1

The descriptions of possible anchorages did not have a lot of detail and we really did not know what to expect. We knew there were falls and that is always an attraction. yup, there … Continue reading June 2-3 – Harmony Islands
