Just wondering how you are doing?
Have you made anymore trips?
The sailing trip up the bay went well. With the weather so nice there are more and more small boats thatI have to watch for and it seems nearly all of them are crabbing. This fills the main channel with floats which are really bad for a sail boat!
After clearing the marina break water we saw a friend setting sail just in front of us so while passing the NOAH dock I raised the main sail, setting it for down wind sailing. The race was on!
With only the main we quickly caught up and passed the other boat (Ava has really nice sails). They put up their down wind headsail to try and catch us so after threading through lots of crab pot floats I unfurled the Genoa and never looked back.
Due to near perfect winds I only had to jibe twice in the 6 mile trip to try to get as much wind on the beam as I could.
We finally lost all air in the hill's wind shadow so motor on and sails stowed we put-putted the last 200 yards to our anchor spot.
That was Friday and we are still here anchored up (except for a quick trip for ice at Sawyers landing....gin and tonics). The plan is to head back in this coming Friday afternoon.
I hope this note finds you well.
