i miss new orleans, and i hear there's a salty, diy sailing scene in florida.
i'm in oakland but burnt out, it's not what it used to be, i miss the work ethic of the east coast. all the tech bro's and 'burners' with money and entitlement and gentrification and increasing class and racial divisions that are pitting people against each other and increasing crime... i'm a nurse and i have a dog so i'm not looking to squat or just travel around but i am looking for a rad sailing/live aboard scene where i can work as little as possible (emergency RN) and sail and work on my boat and bike and hang with my dog more. and hopefully make some rad friends with similar vices and maybe one day soon we'll sail off to the islands...

Sad to hear the bay area isnt what it used to be..... I sailed away in 2006 and haven't been back. I did the east coast in 2015 and found Florida to be a nightmare for minimalist sailors. Maybe Key West is doable but so many coastal towns want to make anchoring out illegal.

About the east bay sailing scene, is the Cal sailing club still there?

Not sure. I am going through membership at Tampa Sailing Squadron - will try to find out more.

And yep, the waterfront people don't like people who anchor (eyesores on 'their' view), cities don't like the lack of 'taxes', etc.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $110.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
