Wind & Water!

Sailing has always been a dream.

We had been living right ON the California coast, but for more than 30 years, it simply didn't FEEL that way. San Jose had always seemed so ... land-locked! The coastal culture just isn't there!

One day, just with a short 20 minute drive from where i work and live, i found myself in port, with direct access to the huge San Francisco Bay! Which has some of the very fine sailing waters of the world!

And so being a sailor is slowly, but finally, becoming a reality for me...!
