    In my model airplane life, RoG means "rise off ground" - a rubber powered model that taxis and takes off by itself - often a card table runway. A couple of grams of balsa, tissue, and rubber.

    The one big drawback to the Delta: mosquitos! Be prepared with a gallon of debt or an acre of netting. Oh, and heat!

    Buck's Landing in Marin County appears to be out of the running for a jump off point. Signed posted, PRIVATE KEEP OUT !!!! That leaves Loch Lomand at the end of the San Rafael Canal as a launch/revover site in that part of Marin.

    Marina Bay YH in Richmond has a good ramp and parking.

    Food for thought.

    I would love to join in on this.
    Slim to no chance I'll have an appropriate vessel in time, though.
    If anyone comes across an inexpensive ($1k-or-less-ish), trailerable, preferably sporty and ideally plane-able for a >250-pound sailor but with room for stores (Megabyte, Laser II, e.g.), post here!
    Or even better: if you want to share ownership of such a thing, preferably in Berkeley dry storage.

    Capri Cyclone... a little more roomy than a Banshee... MUCH more comfy than a laser. If it's got the rig and sails, then...

    I'd be tempted to buy this one, personally

    OK, here's my proposal...three days. launch at the ramp at Sunset Marina, at the Bethel Island Bridge. The Marine Emporium is right there if you need a last-minute part. The San Joaquin yacht Club is right across the channel. Sunset Harbor has room to store trailers for a few days.

    Day One: this is the longest sailing day...out to Franks Tract, across the San Joaquin River and up Little Potato Slough to Terminous. I'm eyeballing this as about 18 miles.
    Overnight in Terminous at one of the Marina's or at the County Park, just on the other side of the bridge over Highway 12. Pictures of that bridge make it look like a small boat mast will easily fit under it.

    Day Two: Terminous to Owl Harbor via the South Mokolumne River. There will be at least one bridge to deal with, the Highway 12 Bridge, which is a steel swing bridge with a relatively low clearance. Overnight at Owl Harbor. This is about a 10 mile sail.

    Day Three: Out into the San Joaquin River...hug the north shore to stay out of the waves, and cut across to Fishermans Cut. Reach down to Franks Tract and take either route around Bethel Island, back to Sunset Harbor. This is a short day, probably about 8-10 miles.

    If folks just want to do a two-day...basically an overnight, here's an option. Launch at Sunset Harbor, sail to Terminous via Franks Tract and Little Potato Slough....
    Sail back to Sunset Harbor the next day, via the South Mokolumne River, about a mile on the SanJoaquin, and then down to Franks Tract again.
