Passing Drakes Bay in the morning, the wind was perfect from the east. We sailed under full canvas making over five knots and sailed toward Bonita channel. The tide shifted to an ebbing current had picked up quite a bit by the time we reached the channel to Golden Gate. Attempting to make our turn into San Francisco, we were making two knots forward headway and five knots sideways. There was no way we were going to be entering the channel till tide change. We sailed around in a big loop and re-entered Bonita channel just in time to catch up to Pacific Cloud, Surprising Bill and Laura in the process. Approaching the Golden Gate Bridge, I was determined to sail under. Making way and passing close to Pacific Cloud, I hollered over to Bill and told him my intentions. He wanted to do the same, yet they couldn't make the head way into the wind. About five minutes later, Bill called on the radio telling us that they lost propulsion. We quickly dropped all our canvas and Made way to Pacific Cloud and took her in tow, pulling her out of the traffic lanes. So much for sailing under the Golden Gate! We anchored briefly determining what our next course of action should be. Once we found out that the shaft had actually slipped out of it's coupling, and we would not be able to fix it at anchor, we towed her into the bay and tied up and South Beach Marina. In the Morning, we checked in with the harbor office.
After performing a hull dive inspection, Mandy Vianne and I spent the day with Mandy's Uncle Andrew and his wife Tres. We had a lovely time visiting the Museum and had dinner with them. We'll be here a few more days and are planning on spending thanks giving in San Francisco.
