Filming Westsails on San Francisco Bay - Sunday 10/4/15

    We are going to be filming footage of Westsails underway for the upcoming Westsail the World Documentary this Sunday 10/4 directly after the Northern California Rendezvous. 

    We've got a professional chase boat set up that will have our director Michael and possibly one other camera man aboard. 

    The idea is to get everyone that can participate off the docks at Richmond on Sunday by 10:30/1100am at the latest and underway and up through the Raccoon Straits to be off Tiburon by Noon. 

    Once the chase boat is there too and we've all congregated, the plan is to sail across the bay on the same tack towards the city front and then tack back as needed for shooting. (not sure if one tack will work better than another) 

    The chase boat will then motor around us while we are under sail getting footage for the Westsail the World documentary.

    We'll all monitor a VHF channel (most likely 68 if there isn't a race happening) so we can communicate on sailing direction etc. 

    I hope you can make it out with your Westsail!

    Let me know if you have any questions.
