Please join us for the last coastal race down to Half Moon Bay Yacht Club.
It’s a great opportunity afterwards to meet your fellow racers at their down-to-earth, friendly setting.
Tie ups at the club’s floating barge, take a mooring ball or anchor, or dock at the public marina.
Dinner information will follow.
See you there!
As “Sept. 11″ becomes more distant with the passing of time, let it not fade too far from our collective memories. It would be nice to see a few of us flying the Flag.
-Commodore, Joe Balderrama

Commodore’s Welcome Letter
Welcome! The San Francisco SSS offers events where singlehanded and short-handed sailors can share knowledge, gain experience, and find a structured environment to expand their horizons. The SSS encompasses everyone from a first-time, double-handed sailor to veterans of the Singlehanded TransPacific (SHTP) yacht race. We are always learning and always sharing knowledge.
