In the Barn
21 June 2011 | San Diego
Sorry we haven't posted in a while but the blog website has been down. Sirocco arrived in San Diego on Saturday at around 4:30 am. After checking in with customs, we moved the boat over to Silver Gate Yacht Club. Les's wife Connie picked us up and brought us back to Oceanside. Lee and I had a much needed nap and then drove up to Dana Point to join other OYC members in a race/cruise event. It was great seeing everyone again.
The bash took us 6 days and 4 hours. The winds weren't too bad but the seas were worse than I expected. The seas finally settled down at around Sacramento Reef and we had a smooth ride all the way to San Diego.
Sirocco will be hauled out on Wednesday to put on a bumper stop on the propeller. We have a free haul out certificate from Shelter Island Boat Yard that expires in August so we decided to use it now. The plan is then to sail back to Oceanside on Thursday.
It's great to be back home but I'm having a tough time with land sickness. I truly get "landsick" at night while in bed. I'll wake up and the bed feels like it is pounding through waves. I might take some Dramamine tonight to try to help mitigate the motion. It seems strange that I am suffering from this since I don't get seasick. Maybe I can't be a landlubber anymore???
