The Final Stop

Bali Hai Buddy
The End is Near! The final stop is Santa Barbara, visiting friends and relatives, lunch and dinner in real USA restaurants and (hopefully) cleaning up the boat, stowing things that will fly across the cabin, for the final sprint to San Francisco. ( Yea, sprint..)
I guess the plan is to wait for the big weather to pass and leave for Cojo Anchorage on Thursday morning early, and if they peek their nose around the corner and its not too bad, they'll just keep going all the way to the Bay. It should take a couple of days and they expect to be at Richmond Yacht Club by Saturday evening.
And, there's no hiding anymore, the AIS tracking is working again now that they're in the States. You can watch them on marinetraffic.com and search for the boat name. I've posted a few pictures from the Bash north from Cabo San Lucas to Santa Barbara, so check out the gallery.....notice how low the sun is in the sky this time! It's not THAT warm without that overhead sunshine, I guess!
