Heading to Napa

We are departing Monday for another trip up the Napa River.  This is sailing at its best!  The 12 mile reach up this narrow river is as amazing as it is beautiful.  The river narrows as you get closer to town.  With the wind at a perfect angle with the river, there is no need for tacking - just a straight shot with full sails up.  We dock in downtown Napa at the south edge of town.  We will have our bikes ready to take us off to some of the top wineries in the valley.  We have friends meeting us along the way for tastings and dinner aboard.  Should be one of the highlights of the summer.  My sailing buddies Tex and John will join Kona and I for a five day trip!  Bon voyage, indeed!
