Our recently scheduled three-nighter to the island was cancelled because of some adverse weather. We would have been coming home today in the cold rain. Wise choice.


One of the most beautiful spots on this planet is Napili Bay. Jackpot has the good fortune to be there everyday. Enjoy brudda!

You can see we used his recent photo for our monthly header pic.

DECEMBER 1, 2016

Wow, where has this year gone? November was a blur and a non-sail month with road trips to Santa Barbara for the Admiral's birthday and Mammoth Lakes for Thanksgiving. And who will forget this presidential election with all the hype, hoopla, drama, accusations and incessant talking heads?

So yesterday, the first day of the last month in 2016, on a sunny, clear-sky day, we went sailing. The small craft warning flag was flying as we left the harbor but the conditions were just the opposite. A light breeze and calm sea made for a very enjoyable time.

BTW, one flag=small craft warning (winds min. 25 mph), two flags=gale warning (min. 35 mph), three flags=storm warning (get out of Dodge!)
