Trip Update - 60 Days Until Departure

We set sails September 9th for Mexico from SF!!.  The boat is almost ready!  I have one more big project (water maker) and tons of little ones.  Last week, we finalized the last crew position.  I was back east and met with Mike and he is in for the 7 month adventure.  We added a new radar last week as well.  Went for a sail with Max and Kona yesterday and all is well with Aquarius.  I can't wait to shove off!!

Nature update:  A recent trip to the Farallones (islands off SF) saw 15 humpbacks, five blue whales, and 1 minke whale.  70 Risso's dolphins, and 80 Pacific white sided dolphins.  That's alot!!

Taking a Break

Aloha sailing fans,

I am taking a break from the blog.  I will resume as we get closer to our departure date for our cruise to Mexico in September.  After 13 years of blogging on this site, I need to focus my efforts else where.  I will be back and our hope is to blog as we go along on our 7 month adventure.  It's going to be a blast!
