Even if this pond is legal, why anyone, other than a beginner or someone who wants to teach a beinner, would even want to sail on a pond in the Bay Area, with all of our options, I really don't know.

Tsokat,
Some of us have a simple rule for sailing. If the round trip drive is longer than the sailing time we are not going. So if I get off work at 6 pm and there is a pond close to home with mid teen wind vs. driving 1 hour to low 20 mph wind, I'm sailing at the pond more often then not.

Shocked
Well, the news is out! My bro Hugo founded this spot, and named it "WINGO". The gate is locked at 5pm, but he got a key through the owners of the winery. He has been trying to get me up there to sail the "speed zone" , but alas, I am too spoiled here at the coast. If you get access, then keep the dust down while driving by the grape vines as it is bad for the vines.
Coachg got it.....if you live in the valley up there, it is a quick trip to get some time on the water. Hugo is about 10 minutes from the launch, so he gets a quick session after work and heads home to the family.
One last thing, watch out for the submerged farm equipment! This was a farm before the levy broke and filled this area with waist to chest deep water.
