Sailors View Of San Francisco Skyline
Photograph - Outdoor Color Landscapes, Transportation, Landmarks, Cities, Skylines, And People
In this classic scene of San Francisco Bay, a sailboat with its sails beautifully unfurled is manned by an unidentifiable sailor looking toward the skyline of San Francisco, California, USA.
San Francisco Bay is a mecca for sailors (boats, as well as windsurfing and kitesurfing), due to consistent strong westerly/northwesterly thermally-generated winds of 15-25 knots, common on summer afternoons, and protection from large open ocean swells. Yachting and yacht racing are popular pastimes, and the San Francisco Bay Area is home to many of the world's top sailors.
