Recommended stops for Delta trip

I finally have a committed time frame from my wife for an 8 day trip up to the Delta at the end of this month (Aug.) after the Americas Cup races are over.

Having only limited time on the Delta prior to this trip I was hoping that we could get some recommended routes and stops (anchorage and marinas) mainly focusing on the Rio Vista to Stockton side. I have researched Active Captain which we used as our bible on the east coast but info there for the Delta is a little sparse.

I appreciate the advice and I have told my wife that I will even come to her office and throw her over my shoulder should work challenges threaten our trip this time.

Thanks in advance.

Gerald

Gerald, Great to hear you're going to make it up to the fresh water side of paradise.

Here's a link to a pretty good discussion of Delta highlights that covered the area pretty well. It's almost a Delta Cruising Guide.

If you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to try to answer them.

the eight hours from San Mateo to the Delta was our big adventure. We've sailed from SF to Hawaii before we got the trawler. Mexico sounds very appealing. Some day.
