Ahoy,Tex and I had a terrific sail to Sausalito on Saturday. We stayed at our favorite marina, Schoonmaker. It's got a great beach for bocce and a restaurant right in the marina. We worked on the bilge for a bunch of hours and by 2pm we were ready to sail from Emeryville. It had been cloudy all day. By the time we reached Raccoon, it was sunny and lovely. Best part of the day.
Sunday was my last sail on the boat as a partner. We headed out the Gate for a bit and I realized it had been a while since going out there. Maybe a couple years. Down past the city front, we gybed for home. We had a nice run back to the barn in a warm wind. Joked about raising the spinnaker one more time but there was too much wind.
Over the last month, I have been doing the best of the bay while sailing to my favorite spots:
1 Sail to Sam's for lunch
2 Sail to Angel Island for bocce and live music (Bobby McGee)
3 Sail to Scott's Cove with John
4 Sail to Sausalito and overnight with Tex at Schoonmaker. Great dinner! And a great way to end my time with this amazing boat.On to a bigger and better boat!
