About sailing on San Francisco Bay

San Francisco BaySan Francisco Bay is both a fascinating and challenging sailing environment.

It is an estuary that drains, among other areas, the entire western slope of the Sierra Nevada. The drainage plus tides create a huge flow of water through the bay. If the mile-wide Golden Gate were a river, it would have the highest volume flow of any river in the world. Tide heights can range up to nine feet in parts of San Francisco Bay.
