If you're looking to do your own thing then Central Valley lakes are a good choice.
New Hogan Reservoir
Rio Vista - winds can be mighty strong though
Clear Lake - not Central Valley, check the algae bloom and lake grass status before going
Bay launches are not as friendly because public access sites don't allow camping, but Crown Beach in Alameda has good beach access if you have beach wheels and a couple strong guys to help get the boat back up the steep drop from the parking lot to the water. Also, learn to read a tide chart so you don't plan a day when the tide is really low.
Contact the Redwood City Marina for info on launching from there. It's supposed to be very good sailing there.
