Traveling to San Francisco is always a good time, but in April, there's even more to do. Fun for the whole family, let's tick them off one at a time.
Get down to the San Francisco Marina to see the Clipper Race ships that recently docked after a hair-razing leg number six of the eight leg race around the world. Ten identical yachts started from England last year and are sailing 40,000 miles to eventually end up back in England this fall. On their latest leg, two ships were heavily damaged in the Pacific, sailing from Qingdao, China to San Francisco. The 68 foot sailing yachts are on visitor pontoons until they sail off on leg seven of their adventure on April 11th.
