2 weeks to the harbor

Just 2 more weeks until we begin our year of diligence as we get serious about accruing sail time. We've decided to sail at least monthly to get more experience and get on with our next certification-Coastal Cruising and moving out of San Diego harbor. We're anxious to step things up a bit but still to novice to do so. So we'll be sailing for 3 days and the San Diego boat show for Capt Ray's birthday.

We have recently realized that its been a year of learning and we have come a long way in knowledge and experiences since last year. We've begun to keep a sailing notebook to start logging all of the important things about boats, trips etc that we talk about but have not documented. They are becoming too numerous to remember.

We recently found a boat model we really like, the european made Oyster. It has an interior layout, and very important windows (for my viewing needs). The island packet is also top on our list.

We'll just keep looking...
