Very nice to have the Double D’s back for a sail (see Feb 2017 post), and to have Tanner (of Aids Lifecycle fame) along for the ride.
A big band of fog sat in the slot all day, making for some strange weather … almost dead calm north of Angel Island, and 18 – 25 in the slot, accompanied by a nice chop.
We drifted around in the calm for a while, had a snack, then battened down for a ride across to the City waterfront, just skirting around the end of the fog bank. With a reef in the main, the return was a touch more comfortable, and we were still keeping up the 7.5 – 8 knots.
The crew demonstrated solid turns at the helm, and seemed to enjoy the exciting drive across the slot as much as basking in the calms.
Back at the dock, the warm weekend continued, serving up a rare treat of being able to eat dinner (fish freshly caught at WholeFoods) in the cockpit.
