Does a boat sail in the water or on the water?
In describing sailing in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay area, which statement is better?
Join us for sailing in the South Bay.
Join us for sailing on the South Bay.
I disgaree. I do not think "IN" the bay is correct. Hopefully your boat will remain on the surface of the water the entire time, only sailing "ON" the bay.
Submarines would be IN the bay. Swimmers would be IN the bay. Boats are usually ON the bay.
