Delivery to San Diego Moved to Monday

Published by under Boats,The Adventure,Wylie 39

Just found out we are going to leave a day earlier than originally expected. On Monday, with the assistance of the tide, we will depart from the Richmond Yacht Club on our way to San Diego–to begin this journey.

Personally, I am almost out of time. So many todo items left . . . so little time.

Tight as a Drum

I know, I know–I should have done this last month, or even the month before, but I have been busy . . . For the last two years, actually.

Anyways, the boat is sealed for the rain. The work is ugly, but overkill,and should accomplish the one goal of keeping me dry.

The storm tonight is expected to be brutal. Gusts of wind up to 65 knots in the central bay.

UPDATE: I beat the rains by 4 hours on this. Too close for comfort, but at least it is done!

Yacht Delivery Count-Down

Published by under Boats,The Adventure,Wylie 39

We are a bit more than one week away from the yacht delivery–the start of the trip for me.

Tuesday, of next week, we will depart San Francisco Bay, and sail to San Diego. It is going to be a quick trip–well be sailing as fast as we can to get to San Diego for the start of the Baja Ha-ha.

Right now, we are looking for another sailor to join us on a Tuesday through Friday sail to San Diego. Food will be provided.
