The boat and crew are top notch. The cabin is both large and open social distancing is not a problem. Great views of the city. The catamaran provides a very stable ride actual sailing verses motoring in a sail boat.

It was so nice to be out on the bay, in the fresh air. The boat is smooth and fast and we especially loved sailing under the Golden Gate. It was a fun day, and we will definitely do it again!
