site is dedicated to the Sonoma 30 - an ultralight, symmetrical-kite
racer from the early 80s. It's a homepage for individual Sonoma
30s, a repository of information related to our boats, and,
hopefully, a magnet for more information about the design,
its history, and any "unknown orphans" floating
around (pardon the pun!) out there.
site's just gettin' started, but we're hoping it grows.
you're looking for information related to the potential new
San Francisco fleet of 30'-ish ultralight-ish racers, look
have any information about the whereabouts of any Sonoma 30s,
or their history, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
