Putting the "Sail" back in Sailfest

Our compassionate cruisers have already hosted more than 200 guests on sailing events. Local musicians have donated their talents for musicial sunsets at sea. The sailing events will continue at least thru February 14th. I suspect more events will be added. Sailors are still arriving. About 35 boats in the bay this morning.

This extremely popular cruise sold out almost instantly, thanks to your talent. I bought 3 tickets for my guests.

People are still being hassled at the pier for tips...why..I thought this was to be stopped last year.

Too aggressive!

It's ridiculous! I don't go to Las Gatas as often as I would like because of it.
My Uncle is visiting and uses a cane and instead of getting out of our way, they were yelling for tips. We almost landed backwards in the boat last week. I ALWAYS tip, but can't there be a safer/nicer way of collecting it?

Too aggressive!

I gave them a tip. Don't touch us. No need to put your hand on my shoulder when I am on the pier.

How did this observation wind up in the Sailfest thread? I assume you are speaking about Los Gatos, not the Sailfest charity cruises.

I’m truly surprised, Larry, that after all these years you still don’t know the name of the beach you look at all day from Casa Arcadia is Las Gatas. Not Los Gatos. It has to do with its history of being a home for a type of nurse shark that no longer visits our bay.

OOPS! You're right, of course. I just wasn't thinking when I wrote. Mea culpa.
