To the Golden Gate!

Fresh from our recent West Coast VI circumnavigation, we were enthused to embrace the next phase of our sailing journey: night sailing. Pumped with enthusiasm (and seasickness meds) we rounded Cape Flattery, only to discover flat seas, a mild swell and little wind. Although we imagined that we would be flying along once we turned the corner southbound, the calm conditions gave us a chance to acclimate to the swells, watch schedules and radar. Here’s our first sunset at sea:

By the second day, we were experiencing “typical” Pacific sailing conditions. Does this look like a content sailor?

151 nautical miles this day!

After we got into the rhythm of the sea, there was time for relaxation and entertainment. (Thank you Alex!)

We even welcomed a visitor to the boat who needed a break from the wind

After cruising over 800 nm from Sidney, BC we zipped under this beautiful entry to the City By the Bay.

This is the crew just after we docked in Sausalito. Pretty happy, eh?

As we looked around our surroundings, we realized we had entered a new world! (Some of us didn’t think it was all that strange…)

Marin County, of course

  2. Envious, to be sure. Love the photos and my vicarious night watches!

    Do you have email for longer communications?
    When do you anticipate arriving in Sun Diego?

    We live aboard at the Kona Kai marina, and would be happy to look into guest berths for you. We are also members of the SWYC and if your club reciprocates am happy to check there for a slip too (need LOA and beam for both).
