A couple of places -

Santa Clara Point...or El Carmel - both are on the west side of mission bay. (and free) Get down there early though, parking can be limited on summer days!

There are a bunch of cats that sail out of Mission Bay yacht club too - on nice weekends there'll be about a dozen or so out on sail bay. Just a quick sail around the inlet to go outside in the waves! Great place to sail...we'll look for ya on the water!

Directions? Both ramps / streets are off of Mission Blvd. in Mission Beach. North of the roller coaster. Take Hwy 8 (or from 5... take Sea World Blvd.) to Ingram street then north to West Mission Bay drive west and north on Mission Blvd. El Carmel is first. Take a right and the second stop sign. Santa Clara is second, take a right at the first light. There is no trailer parking area on El Carmel.

thanks,
Which would you say is better to push off? It looks like santa clara's ramp (from google maps) goes right into a bunch of moored boats, that can be intimidating, or is there another place to push off?

Thanks,
luke

Luke,

Santa Clara looks worse than it is. There's plenty of room in-between the Mission Bay Aquatic Center dock and the moored boats. It's usually a reach through that area so you'll have plenty of maneuverability.

If you have beach wheels your options open up to places without boat ramps. At Santa Clara you can just wheel your boat to the grass and set it up there.

An alternative place to launch is right behind the Bahia Hotel. http://maps.google.com/maps?oi=map&q=99 ... ,+CA+92109 Go into the bahia hotel entrance and follow the road out to the point. You’ll have to take your trailer off and park it next to your vehicle. When I raced Lasers there would usually be around 8 – 12 boats launching from that spot. It gets pretty deep on the main water way so look for the bottom before you jump off…

If you have a dog and just want to kick back on the beach and you don’t mind power boats and jet skis, you can go to Fiesta Island http://www.sandiego.gov/park-and-recrea ... and.shtml# Personally I would stay within Sail Bay, but it’s an option.

There are a bunch of places to sail in this area – check out www.hobiedivision2.com and click on “Regatta Scheduleâ€

Thanks for all the info, I have just one more question,

Since mission bay area and san diego harbor are much better sailing than my current location, where can I keep my cat? Are there any yards or anything that you reccomend, I am a san diego local (I have an address there)
We ususally stay there for a few days at a time, is there a place to leave my cat on the beach for a rent fee or something?

Thanks,
luke
