Another cruising weekend



After a late night with the Culann’s Hounds at the yacht club, Greg, Matey and I are headed up the San Rafael canal for a club cruise. I hear tonight is a Western night with another band.

Oh. And what started out with us thinking would be a staysail day (winds are forecasted to be 45 kts). Turns out to be a spinnaker reach. And we could use a little more wind- we’re only speeding along at 3 kts. Though it’s early (11am) so the wind will probably pick up this afternoon. We needed to leave early as depth can be an issue in the canal.
