Heading over to Devil's Isle. Saw three freighters already in just five minutes on the river. One passed right in front of us as we turned into the main river. We're turning off onto a freighter free slough now.
We're also trying out our new flybridge cushions from the Improvements catalog.
We've had some lovely Delta weekends lately. A ski boat weekend a couple weeks ago where we went through the beautiful Steamboat Slough and had a late lunch at Wimpys deck bar, then last weekend was an Ox Bow Yacht Club cruise to Delta Marina in Rio Vista. We had a lovely dinner (all 35 of us) at the Point restaurant. They did an amazing job with our large group.

I'm always amazed how much faith people put in their electronics. They are not 100% accurate, I can assure you the boat was really in the blue and not the yellow.
Nice group at our cruise out. Popular gas dock, saw lots of LEOs fueling up for their patrols (right next to coast guard station Rio Vista plus I think the sheriff boat(s?) is kept here.
I sailed a few times in my early 20s but it wasn't until I moved back to California (having moved away with my family when I was a kid) that I actually LEARNED how to sail. I took a two weekend "basic keelboat" class and I was hooked.
I went to a local yacht club for weeknight beercan races. There I met my husband and we have been boating together ever since.
If you had asked me when I was first learning to sail if I would one day be Commodore of a Yacht Club or sail to Hawaii I probably would have laughed at the idea. I'm proud I made it through my Commodore year (2009) and sailed in the Pacific Cup in 2010!
Now we have a trawler that we cruise in the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento and San Joaquin River Deltas.
