It was a cool afternoon on the water but the Admiral and I logged 20 nautical miles today. Winds were a consistent 12-16 knots from the west and the water was a chilly 56 degrees. Bob Marley entertained us. I think he would appreciate this picture.

A 15 knot westerly, a gennaker. a little sunshine and good company took us down the San Clemente coastline. This all took place after Bullseye and The Ranger spend the morning at Doho catching a few waves. This year is starting off on the right foot. LET'S GO SAILING!

The Ranger, and his sidekick Bullseye, joined the capt for a short, exciting and windy afternoon. With reefed main and genny, winds clocked up to 24 knots. The south wind swell mixed with the prevailing west ground swell for a rather confused but exhilarating sea. The sun did prevail later in the afternoon and the crew plans a morning surf session tomorrow before another day on the water.

Great years for the Admiral and the capt as we sailed our Hobie 16 from the marina in Dana Point. The cat was tricked out with custom rudders, a double trapeze set up, a righting system etc., etc. Jackpot was working at Murray Marine in Santa Barbara so he kept us abreast of the latest hot upgrades. The capt even made a passage to Avalon back then. Fall was always special when the warm off-shore Santa Ana winds blew. Nothing like a "Hobie Day". Let's go sailing!
