We sailed on Luna Sea on the hottest day of the year so far in winds that were light to begin with, so we did mostly motoring into the open waters of the bay. After lunch the winds came up. We sailed from the San Francisco waterfront to the Golden Gate Bridge. The winds hit 20nm. The boat handled the winds very nicely and we had an exhilarating sail from the waterfront to Tiburon then down behind Alcatraz Island. From 1:30 till 5:00 the winds continued to blow very nicely. Dan's boat handles beautifully, doing well in open waters with moderate winds. My crew was excited and enthusiastic and we all want to return as soon as possible. We're looking at another trip in the fall and maybe sooner. Dan was very welcoming and accommodating. He allowed us to stay on the boat the night before the sailing trip, which was very convenient since we didn't have to fight Bay Area traffic on the day of the sail. Thank you Dan.
Keith was super helpful, and Bonkers is a great boat! We made it out under the Golden Gate, along the city front, and finished up with a brief stay at Angel Island. I would definitely recommend the boat in large part thanks to its location.
