Wow! What a year it has been for my family and I. Lots of fun and travel (Caribbean, Hawaii and Mexico), business doing well, sailing a bunch and too much fun! The big news on our boat was the transition to an electric motor from a 33 year old diesel.
I set some sailing goals each year and its fun to look back and see where we have been.
Here are last years goals:
Start looking at boats for the radical sabbatical to New Zealand and Australia departing 2018 for a 1.5 year adventure +
A 5 day trip to the Delta
Plan a trip for 2015 to the Grenadines +
More spinnaker sails
Sail in the 21st annual Baja Haha and the 2nd annual Socal Tata via Latitude 38 +
Six nights at anchor on the bay
Sail with John on his new to him 41' Islander +
Raft up in Clipper Cove
Sails to Giants day games +
Be safe! +
+ = Done!
Here are my goals for 2015:
Sail the Grenadines
Continue the search for the perfect boat to sail to the South Pacific
Sail to Napa
Take out more friends and family for day sails

The years seem to get better and better as we sail along. I am one fortunate sailor and I hope the good fortune continues. Here's to a fantastic 2015! Cheers.
And here is one more bonehead move to finish off the year.
