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.

Inside of the historic electric trams that circle the Embarcadero.
Old Style Americas Cup 72. You can charter out and go out and watch the races and help sail the boat.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
