Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Wind, Rain, Sleet, Snot Snow, Whatever

It does not matter what pissed off Mother Nature throws at us this weekend.
30 knots.
Drizzle.
Fog.
We are going here:Or there...
One of those anchorages.
Or two.

It's time.
It's been nine months since this boat as seen that island.
That is absolutely the longest time we have been in a harbor.
This was the windiest, rainiest, yukiest winter / spring I can remember.
It's time.
Plus it's Memorial Day.
Memorial Day tradition ~ go to the islands, get wind, watch boats drag.

Well, it is traditionally the worst weekend of the year but, hey, have fun!! I know you are going crazy...I can hear it in your voice...you need need need the open water and the space and you will come back happy even if it is a really really bad weekend! Have a delightful time. Stay safe and be happy. You deserve it!

It is usually the worst weekend! Have to watch out for those tri trip stealing seagulls too. Anything is better than staying in the harbor at this point!
Thanks K, S & J!
