23 August 2013 | 119 NM NW of the Golden Gate Bridge
Since the wind hasn't filled in to more than a very sporadic 5kts from the N, we had to motor all night last night, and headed to Ft Bragg to refuel and since we were there, get more coffee. Our current situation is as follows: No wind, motoring. Approx 18.5 hrs to the Golden Gate Bridge at an average of 6kts. Sunny weather, tho fog not far away. Humpback whales galore! Deciding between roasted chicken or grilled salmon for dinner tonight. We hope the wind will fill this evening to the forecasted 15 - 20 kts and we will be able to sail again. Fingers crossed. Spirits are good, but I think having to hit another port (in which Rachelle lost her phone over the side of the boat) took its toll on the general moral, (although the whales did a good bit to bring it back up) and people are very ready to be in Alameda. Will be in touch.
