Every week we pick a newly submitted photo from the Flickr Group "See Monterey- Beautiful Photos of Monterey County." This week's winner is "Sailboat" submitted by Jerad McCarty.

Does this pic entice you to set sail on the Monterey Bay? Whether you are looking for a short sail out on the bay, a romantic dinner cruise, a private charter or sailing lessons, you can do it all on Monterey Bay. The unique winds that pick up in the bay make conditions ideal for unfurling the sails almost every day at any time.

Several sailing providers depart from Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey and many of them have cruises leaving daily throughout the year. One to two hours of sailing is a great way to see the Monterey Bay and its unique inhabitants, with the snap of the sail and the lap of the ocean as your only soundtrack. The lucky sailor might even encounter a few gray whales, sea lions, orcas or even a school of dolphins
