Dodging traffic in San Diego Bay

05 May 2013 | San Diego
One of the reasons I wanted to return to San Diego was to be able to take friends and family sailing....something that didn't happen very often while in Mexico. Yesterday for the first time in over two years I took my Daughter Amber and her boyfriend Wade, and friends Heather, Robin and Robins niece Galean out for a sail on San Diego Bay. OK....so it wasn't a perfect San Diego sailing day, in fact the wind was from almost due south at about 10-12 knots, which conveniently blows me away from the dock while coming and going into the slip. It was also quite cloudy/overcast which isn't all that unusual for May in SD.. Never the less it was great to be back out on the bay. I had to get use to watching out for other boats and trying to remember the "rules of the road" all the while bundled up to combat the frigid 65 degree weather. As usual the newbie sailors (Robin and Galean) showed up in shorts and light tops in anticipation of working on their tans...only to have to borrow hoodies and blankets to fight off the potential for frostbite. For most of the day we had 10-15 knot winds and sailed under reefed sails, more for comfort than necessity. Everyone did a great job of crewing and as predicted the most excitement was coming and going from the slip in the breezy cross wind, especially Amber's leap of faith as we blew away from the dock while leaving. San Diego is such a beautiful place to sail, and I look forward to taking more friends/family out over the next several months......just don't forget your hoodies.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
Extra: I am currently in Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta area), where I will be spending the 2012 hurricane season at the beautiful Paradise Village Marina.
