Why We Have Our Boats
« on: May 05, 2020, 04:59:08 PM »

This past Friday San Diego Bay was opened for recreational boating. Today I went for a solo sail. I intended to stay in the bay with full main and jib to check for gremlins after sitting for a month. I couldn't resist the view so kept going out to the ocean. WNW wind varied between 10-16 knots. Reefed the main and jib right before the point, everything balanced, a great sail with typical swell. Unfortunately it was tack city coming back due to wind direction, so ended up motoring most of the way in (against the tide).

Sweet.  I miss that swell.  Great feeling as you work with your legs and stay stabilized.  Once, coming downwind from the Ocean through the Golden Gate, I had a magical hour with batches of dolphins off our port quarter, sitting on the port perchseat.  Heavenly.

Thanks for the photos.

Thanks Jon...  we took a season off, so the last time I've been sailing was 2018!  Miss that feeling!
