Subject: Arrival: ON DELAY, Port: SAN FRANCISCO
ARRIVAL of ship: ON DELAY
Port: SAN FRANCISCO

(Time of arrival/departure is the time the vessel approaches the entrance/exit of the port respectively)
Around 10:30 pm on Saturday night, On Delay, with Pete, Tony, and Renan aboard, sailed under the Golden Gate into San Francisco Bay. Their journey of 33 days and ~4000 nautical miles was complete.
They sailed under the bridge in style: the engines turned off and a full main sail and orange storm jib flying. Their SOG (speed over ground) was a mere 0.9 knots because of the brutal ebb tide. However, Pete reported that the leisurely pace made the champagne drinking easier.
In the wee hours of Sunday morning, On Delay tied up at the guest dock at South Beach harbor. She stayed there until Sunday, June 29th. And now she is in Richmond, East Bay.
