sailing Santa Cruz Island


at the helm, holding down 6.5 knots! What fun


Calafia, our 42 foot Catalina at anchor in Prisoners Cove.

I completed the ASA Coastal Crusing 104 Bareboat chartering class this past weekend by sailing to Santa Cruz Island. It was aa great sail with winds gusting 25-30 knots on the way back! What a ride, the boat flying along at 7 knots and bouncing about. We (our instructor captain Rob, myself, Doug and Wena) went by several amazing places learning that Tales of a Sea Captains Wife is based on sailing in this area. Can't wait to get the guide to crusing in this area and read up a bit more.

Take in the AM while anchored.

coming out of painted cave, there are a family of SeaLions that live in there and they sound amazing! I would never drive a sailboat in there, it was great to have captain Rob along to make it happen.
