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...

Memorial Day ~ Typical

Well, it's notoriously windy here in the Santa Barbara Channel on Memorial Day Weekend.
Gale warning the entire weekend.
20-25, gusts to 30.
25-30, gusts to 40.
So no island trip this year.
Instead?
A crazy ride on Vessel Assist's black inflatable on Friday afternoon.
Going 35 knots in the slop coming in from the 30+ on the outside.
AIRBORN!
Yikes!
Donuts!
Yikes!
Flying off of the waves!
Yikes!
AIRBORN AGAIN!
Yikes!
Heart pumping...
Ok, enough of that.
On to the rest of the weekend.
Wind. Wind. Wind. Wine. Dinner. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Cleaning. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Movie. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wine. G-Dock Party. Yacht Club Friends. Wine. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind.Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wind. Wine. Wind. Wind. End.

We have had the same winds here for the past month. Finally laid down this morning and now it's like a sauna out there.

I'll take some of that sauna please. Although.... must be harder to knit when you are dripping! Still doing it! Still learning and loving it! :)
