Treasure Island and Angel Island, SF Bay

While at the Aquatic Park, we took my parents for a day sail to Angel Island where we docked and walked over to the old immigration camp complete with the poetry of the Chinese immigrants who were kept there for long periods of time and often denied entry.

We spent 3 weeks at Clipper Cove between Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island. The wonderful thing for us was that it is a MUNI bus from there to downtown SF and we had purchased MUNI passes for the month of August. We were able to zip into town on the bus at will. The anchorage could be windy but not as windy as the Aquatic Park if you tucked in close to the beach and we found good holding in mud. The only downside is that on the weekends it gets quite crowded and a large number of the incoming boats don’t know so much about anchoring. We’ve already told that tale.

The view of downtown SF from Treasure Island is beautiful and we had access to the marina dinghy dock (normally off limits) which made coming to shore and toting goods back and forth painless. I somehow managed to not take a picture of the anchorage.

We also met a number of boaters while anchored there – more on that later
