Getting a little closer to family and friends by moving closer to the city. Pillar Point has a great marina with a very safe (and large!) anchorage. We will be here at least a week.
For those that might want to try this anchorage, it is very secure behind a breakwater. It is free for the first 7 nights, then $7 per night. You also have the choice of a mooring ball for $11 a night, or the marina, if they have room, for $.77 per foot per night, quite reasonable for San Francisco area. The marina is behind an additional breakwater.
