We’re off the dock at 9:30 a.m. and so are several other pleasure craft. The sun is bright, it’s relatively warm, we have mostly clear skies with a few cirrus overhead. The forecast is good for downwind sailing, perhaps a rolly sail but the seas and winds should be kindly enough so that we can get some sleep on this passage.
We said our farewells to family with a wonderful dinner. Lots of hugs, smiles and a few tears last night as we were dropped off at the dock. We will miss our family but knowing they are following us on the Yotreps report, Skype and with some cell coverage down the coast keeps them close.
Next stop San Francisco where my sister and family are excitedly waiting. We’re anticipating to see the Golden Gate from the ocean, I hope the fog will oblige us so we capture some beautiful pictures as we cross under it, with full sails up too.
