This summer, Sunsail will open its newest base in San Francisco Bay, where the international charter company will offer both charters and corporate sailing events aboard a fleet of eight brand new Sunsail First 40s. With a comfortable 3-cabin/1-head layout, the First 40 has proven to be a fine performance cruiser-racer, with room for up to eight crew and a layout ideal for both sail-training and cruising.
