San Francisco

 Approaching the Golden Gate. The short term end of our 4000 plus miles to get here. To say we were excited to stay settled for awhile is an understatement.
 Queenie was excited to sail/motor under the span.
 Our anchorage in Sausalito. As it is only a couple of miles to the race course i expect to spend some time here.
 Mark Gesley had us over for steak on the barbie up in the Oakland Hills. I have known Mark since high school. The picture below is Lake Merritt in Oakland.
 Our transport to and from Sausalito to the City. If you don not scope it out it can cost $10 each way. By buying a clipper card for $3 then charging it....cost becomes $4.75 each way. tip for travelers to City!
 Alcatraz with CG buoy tender at work.
 The outside of the Americas Cup Park. More to follow in a later post.
 Team New Zealand practicing on the bay.
 Inside of the historic electric trams that circle the Embarcadero.
 Market Street
Old Style Americas Cup 72. You can charter out and go out and watch the races and help sail the boat.
