Inevitably, every time I send in a post, something else happens that I want to share. Then by the next day o forget what it was.
Let’s see… We have been covering some serious ground since the winds picked up. I think we are doing 6.5-7 knots with only two small sails up. Currently aiming for Bodega Bay and hope to make it with enough light to anchor for the evening. Then, once we figure out the tides/currents under the Golden Gate, we will head towards Berkley Marina in the morning.
I can’t believe we are almost there. At day 3, it seemed like we would never get there, and now we are less than 100 miles away. I’m honestly at a loss to say how it happened because somehow none of it feels real. I mean, the cold damp everything feels real, just not the fact that we are nearly done with the Big Left Turn and our first ocean passage in Small World. My god, we are so close to cell service. I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve!
