Waiting for Sunset just out of the San Diego Bay and sail back after dark when all city lights are on. The high light of your trip. You will enjoy a relaxing sail with a glass of good local wine & pleasant company along with a sense of unity with nature that comes with being under sail.
My name is Russ and I'm from Moldova - a country "known" for its wines. I spent 10 years traveling & working in several foreign countries, including Turkey & Thailand in the position of tour guide. My karma must have been positive in 2014 when I won the Green Card Lottery & got to come to California! After a couple of seasons of commercial fishing in Alaska, I was able to get a U.S Coast Guard Captain' s License & managed to buy my own sailing yacht in San Francisco. I christened her "Green Flash" & sailed her for 6 days south to San Diego. Now you can find me sailing in San Diego Bay almost every day.

San Diego Bay is a very protected place with the best scenery that makes it a good place to enjoy calm sailing for everyone. My sail yacht will take you on the unforgivable experience of your vacation. Meet local sea lions, seabirds and maybe we will see how navy training dolphins in the bay. It is also one of the biggest NAVY bases in the country so we will most likely see NAVY flying helicopters and operating huge ships during the tour.
