Sailing away from Alameda!

Sailing away.... in New Zealand!
Sailing away…. in New Zealand!

This is Sean and his crew, Matt, heading out to the starting line, in Sean’s R Class boat. Sean and Sutter live in New Zealand. It was blowing about 16 knots out in Lyttelton Harbor that day.

What’s this got to do with Alameda? Alameda has great winds that attract all kinds of wind-blown folk! Windsurfers, kiteboarders, sailors from around the world, and big yacht owners!  And you don’t have to travel, via plane, to get from Alameda to San Francisco Bay!

Commentary (very short)

This post is early by a day…will get back on schedule in a couple of weeks.

I think it’s somewhat telling when there are these simple stats for this week:

1 BOM, 1 expired, 1 PCH

Maybe the market is shifting….

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
