After two days at sea since leaving Crescent City we were looking forward to Sausalito and the San Francisco Bay. Was not to be as the tide was wrong at the Gate. Full moon time and the max flood approaches 5 knots, so we decided to stop at Drakes Bay near Pt Reyes and spend the day and leave for SF in the morning, with the tide. We were in the fog for 30 plus hours so nice to see land and a little clearing.
Having the new radar and the AIS in the fog was a real help reducing skippers anxiety levels.
The standard welcoming committee was present during our approach to the bay.

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.
