San Francisco Bay rendezvous September 6th 2014, anyone?

Post by monroe »

Hello,

We are in San Francisco bay for an unplanned extended stay (cat needed veterinarian attention). We should be able to leave Alameda on September 5th. Would anyone be interested in a Freedom Rendezvous on September 6th in Clipper Cove?

Doug, I'm racing on a friend's Olson 25 that day out of Berkeley so can't make it. Darn.

It was really nice to meet you, Cindy and Maui! All the best on your cruising plans :D

I will be sailing this weekend. If the tides are right I will duck into clipper cove coming and going from Alameda to see if anyone is around. Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!

The gooseneck on Kyntanna sheared on Saturday as I was lowering my (brand new) mainsail. Luckily, we had just gotten inside Pillar Point Harbor and out of 8-ft swells. The boom is now lashed to the toe rail. If conditions are good next Sunday, will leave very early and motor back to Treasure Island. Once i get everything put away, I'll dinghy over if I have time and will say hello.

If anyone has any suggestions on the gooseneck (about any detail or contact at all), please let me know!

Hi Carliane,

I'm assuming you have Kenyon booms. The only place I know of with parts for Kenyon spars is rigrite.com. They are quirky in that you have to look up the parts you want on their web site, then call them with the part numbers to place your order. The web site does not include prices. We placed an order for sheaves with them, everything was supposedly in stock, but we never received the order, they never billed us for the order, and repeated messages left on the order tracking line have not been returned.

Hoping to see you Sunday,

Doug

Well, the cat's stitches are out, but the vet wants him to take it easy for a few more days.
We won't be coming in to Clipper Cove until Sunday afternoon earliest.
We'll keep you posted.
