I finally made it to Mission Bay...after listening to weather report after weather report with misleading (wrong) information, I finally decided to cast off and take my chances with the predicted 25 knot gusts tonight. Mission Bay is a great anchorage that takes about 10 minutes to get to from Sun Harbor Marina by car.....I made very good time today and it took me 3.5 hours of motor sailing (mostly motor). BUT REMEMBER "sailing is about the journey, not the destination". So far I haven't seen any 25 knot gusts...in fact there was almost no wind on the way here...it got me to thinking....I wonder if NOAA knows that there is a decimal point in 2.5 knots???
I'm looking forward to spending a few days here as most of the time I anchor here it's for a quick in/out on the way to Catalina. I may even take a ride on the world famous Big Dipper roller coaster.
