Light Air Sailing

Like we always say, "Every day is different".  Our last two sails have been exactly that. Friday was a gennaker day in super light air and plenty of sunshine. Yesterday was even lighter. After dousing the headsail, we traveled to Danalina and anchored for the afternoon.

36 years ago on this day, the Admiral and capt entered into holy matrimony. And how did we celebrate this pious occasion? We went sailing!

4 Nights on Catalina Island

Two backcountry rangers joined the crew for a quick trip to the front side of Catalina. This video pretty much tells the story.

"Let's Go Sailing!"

With a mom-marathoner-mountaineer leading the way and calling out the mantra, the Santa Clarita crew met in Dana Point for an afternoon on Serenity Now. The day was clear, the company was grand and the sunset was spectacular. A wonderful rendezvous (a little French for my friends) with Mother Nature.

E Ticket Ride...Wet & Wild

Two saturdays in a row of awesome sailing conditions. The day began at Danalina where we dropped an early lunch hook and enjoyed our Subways. The wind was blowing from the south so we were able to sail in and out of the anchorage. The south wind, 18-22 knots, also brought a south wind chop as we reached along the coast toward San O. With a reefed main and full genny, our SOG stayed well above 7 knots the entire leg. Our return trip was much more civil as the wind decreased later in the afternoon. Wonderful day.
