San Francisco to the CA Channel Islands

Just like the Coastal Cup, but not carrying a spinnaker around Point Conception equals “less terror”.


Somewhere to the west of California

Plus two and a half days kicking it on Santa Cruz Island that was just incredible. This was better than BVI. Seriously.

Fry’s Harbor.

Actually, nevermind. It was awful. Don’t go. With all due respect to one of the most overrated bars in SF: Warm Beer, Cold Women, Stay Away.

Raced Vallejo with j/105 Racer X (foredeck, as usual). Great sailing. Got a 2nd (day one) and a 3rd (day two). Day one ended with a tight reaching spinnaker duel up the Napa River mouth, and day 2 was an absolute soaking wet washing machine ride (with no chute needed).
