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 Payback

So sitting over here in the cheap seats.
"Last Chance Marina".
Where I pretty much spend my entire life...
Home, work, home.
We get beat up when we have strong prevailing winds.
Before this last trip to Mexico, we were parked across the channel at a different marina.
We used to sit and laugh at watch the boats in the cheap seats take the brunt and slop and crap in strong prevailing winds.And laugh some more and think "fools"!

Well fast forward and now we are the ones getting beat up.
In the case of EAST WINDS!Now we are protected and they are getting the wind, slop, crap and dirt.
And the occaisional un-furling headsail.
