The Golden Gate was first discovered by non natives in the 1700s. Over the following decades ships wrecked on the rocks at the water’s edge. The area on the south side of the Golden Gate is known as Lands End. A 36 foot sailboat with a husband and wife aboard, ran into the rocks in a gale wind on May 24, 2010. This video was shot on May 25 searching for the boat which I did not find. The husband and wife washed up on Ocean Beach 1.5 miles south and west. They had drowned.
