    I frequently sailed a Zephyr sailboat on San Francisco Bay many years ago somewhere around 1956. With its long heavily weighted fin, it was a joy to sail in heavy winds that you often encountered near the Holden Gate Narrows or whipping around Angel Island. Wish I could find one for sale today in 2024!
