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...

Finally on The Water!

This "winter" or "wind season" as I am now going to call it, seems to have finally broke.
Now it's June Gloom.
And drippy.
But I will take it over 30+ knots of wind.

So a day sail was in order.
But let's do it on someone else's boat.
You know, one that is easier to rig and actually un-tie from a dock?
First you have to talk your friends into driving several hours to bring the boat.
Then step the mast and rig it.
Susan and I managed to sneak away and let the guys to this...
Then put it in the water.
Once again we snuck away!
Then remember how the running back stays are supposed to be rigged.
I was there for this, but Susan...?

Then sail.

And watch our friends sail by.
And smile.
