As many know, San Francisco's Clipper Cove is threatened by a developer proposal to convert the heart of Clipper Cove into a private marina, a marina dedicated exclusively to boats running 40-80 feet in length (and they would demolish the existing small boat marina dedicated to craft running 16-36 feet). Worse the local planning board recently gave the plan a thumbs up. Fortunately a resolution to protect the Cove has been introduced to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors by Supervisor Jane Kim. The resolution doesn't stop marina redevelopment/expansion in the Cove. It just sets reasonable guidelines. The resolution has been endorsed by US Sailing, Save the Bay, San Francisco Bay Keeper, Friends of the Sailing Center, and many others. Supervisor Catherine Stefani, who represents the City's northern waterfront, home to much of the City's sailing community, is in a particularly good position to help. Please consider emailing Supervisor Stefani and ask her to co-sponsor the Clipper Cove planning resolution (#180331) to protect the Cove. You can reach her at Catherine.Stefani@sfgov.org Clipper Cove at Treasure Island is a local mecca for small boat sailing and home to the City's only community sailing center. In the words of US Sailing the proposed marina "would dramatically reduce public access to Clipper Cove and significantly diminish the public recreation and educations programs operated by the Treasure Island Sailing Center, particularly the Center's youth programs. Clipper Cove, widely recognized as one of the best small boating venues on the West Coast, would be significantly and permanently diminished." A City Hall hearing on the Clipper Cove resolution is scheduled for Monday April 30. Supervisor Stefani can help send a strong message to the hearing by co-sponsoring the resolution now. To ask her to co-sponsor the resolution now you can reach her at Catherine.Stefani@sfgov.org
I have been looking for a Capri 14.2 for some time but have just been unable to find one close to me. A Vanguard 15 has popped up 20min from me BUT, it is only the hull standing rigging and mast. No boom rudder dagger or sails. What is there is in good shape or better. How much would it be worth? Are booms, dagger, rudders easy to find? I think i can be into the hull and mast for $100-$150. I know the 14.2 and the V15 are very different boats but at this point i think i will just sail the V15 till i find a 14.2. Also, i already have a good trailer waiting for a boat.
huntercutting posted a topic in Sailing AnarchyLatitude38 highlights the key moment during Wednesday's TIDA hearing on Darius Anderson's proposal to take 1/3rd of Clipper Cove at Treasure Island, San Francisco, for a private luxury marina: "But a pointed question by Tsen to TISC Executive Director Travis Lund got to the heart of the matter concerning development: Would TISC be able to safely run their programs on the water if the new marina development was built? With TISC Foundation board chair Carisa Harris-Adamson unable to attend the meeting, it was up to Lund to carefully articulate the answer: yes and no." "Lund reiterated Harris-Adamson's previous published statement that the compromise was reached in good faith, to prevent the larger marina plan that would have annihilated safe sailable space at Clipper Cove, killing TISC's programs. Under the current marina plan, TISC's programs could continue — but they would be severely impacted, as would both youth and adult racing and adult cruising at the protected Cove." http://www.latitude38.com/lectronic/lectronicday.lasso?date=2017-10-13#Story2 Below is an aerial shot of Clipper Cove as it is now: the largest, most well protected open water cove in San Francisco. The current marina is tucked into the upper left hand corner of the Cove. The small docks of the Treasure Island Sailing Center are at the upper right. The Cove is also one of the most popular Bay Area destinations for cruising, and anchor-outs can been seen in the sheltered waters of the Cove. Also below is the developer's blueprint is overlaid on top of the existing conditions at the Cove. Under the developers’ vision, the marina is moved out of the corner of the Cove and expanded several times over, taking one-third of the Cove. The expansion would demolish the existing marina dedicated almost entirely to boats running 16-36 feet and would dedicate the new marina exclusively to boats running 40-80 feet. This plan is opposed by the the U.S. Sailing Association, Friends of the Sailing Center, and San Francisco Bay Keeper. The plan is also opposed over two-dozen public schools teachers who take part in the annual science/sailing STEM classes taught on the Cove that put over 2,000 4th graders onto the San Francisco Bay each year. For most of these kids, it is their first time on the Bay and for many, it is their first time ever being on water. The Sailing Center has published a detailed assessment of Anderson's proposal. His plan would reduce the range and depth of the Cove STEM program and would entirely block some beginning youth sailors from entering the heart of the Cove and reaching the beach at the west end (the upwind end of the Cove), which is currently the major milestone for the kids in the Cove learning to sail. As mentioned above, youth adult racing in the Cove would also be severely impacted. Opponent of Anderson's luxury marina proposal have endorsed a "minimal impact" expansion plan put forward last year by the Sailing Center that would almost triple the footprint of the existing marina. However, Anderson has rejected that plan and continues to push the current proposal.
