While there many ways to enjoy the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, we at Seashine think there is truly nothing like being on the water. While August is already here, and may of us are probably wondering where the summer has gone. Hopefully the best weather is yet to come! After all, the Bay Area is know for their “Indian” summers and beautiful weather going into November. So don’t let another weekend pass before your next Bay Area boat adventure.

In this article we will explore exciting Bay Area boat events and marine activities for the month of August. In addition, for the next few articles articles we add a section which will feature a city, this article Sausalito Marinas, and a take a quick look at the marinas and provide a link for more information. And of course Seashine is always here to help in your boat cleaning and yacht maintenance needs along the way!

Adventure of the Month: Half day trip around Treasure and Angel Island

Leaving Sausalito, head toward the San Francisco shoreline. Be sure to adjust the sails for the first portion of the ride, as the wind picks up quickly as you enter the “slot”, the open wind from the Golden Gate Bridge into the bay. Take a quick stop at the local farmers market or one of the new great restaurants along the SF embarcadero or continue on under the new Bay Bridge. Make a quick turn just after the bridge and head south around the west side of treasure island and back toward Angel Island. The wind usually quickly picks up, and set sail towards Angel Island up Racoon Straight. Keep your eyes out for the ever growing seal population on the bay as the fish season is in full swing. you can often times see them munching on a large salmon or stripped baas. Wrap the day up with a nice pizza and beer at the Bocci Bar or one of Sausalito’s great food spots! Please send us your pictures and day trips on the Bay. We would love to feature them on our website.
