13 December 2006 | Behind Point Reyes, 20 miles south of Bodega Bay, CA 37 59.81N 122 58.49W
Just a quick note: We left Bodega Bay on Wednesday, Dec. 6th, motoring only five hours down to Drake's Bay, a little anchorage tucked behind a natural point on the coast, called Point Reyes. There we spent a peaceful night at anchor.
This manuever would place us in a good position for the following day. Drake's Bay was only 30 miles north of San Francisco, and leaving Drake's Bay at 0900 hours, we could pass through all the Bay area shipping channels in broad daylight.
Our plan was to get down to Half Moon Bay by sunset. (Half Moon Bay is 30 miles south of SF). With this plan, there would be no stopping in San Francisco.
We both agreed that negotiating the shipping traffic in the SF Bay and the big city just wasn't worth it...
Well... see next posting.
