Sunday Afternoon With My Grandson

On a warm and pleasant Sunday afternoon last October, I was able to spend a fine afternoon with my grandson out on the Bay. And, at an event available for all. The Matthew Turner is a 132-foot Brigantine tall ship built as a replica of an 1880s cargo vessel sailing between San Francisco and Tahiti.

Construction was completed several years ago in Sausalito by volunteers using traditional materials and methods. Her day job is taking kids out on the water for “Call-of-the-Sea” maritime, science and environmental educational programs. On the weekends, however, it is possible to sign aboard for a three-hour sail, with lunch, out on the Bay. Masks, closely supervised social distancing, and 10 to 15 knots of breeze combine for a pretty safe environment. This time of the year the Bay is especially beautiful and pleasant. I highly recommend it!
