We just wanted to update you all on our progress.
We're still planning to depart SF Bay on the 29th or 30th of September.
Our current plans our to take our time cruising down the coast visiting spots like Morro Bay and the Channel Islands.
We'll arrive in Marina del Rey sometime the week of October 10th to visit with family and friends in the area and continue to San Diego to spend some time the week of October 17th prior to the start of the Baja-Haha on October 25th.
We went on a short cruise this past holiday weekend with 4 other Valiant sailboats down to Half Moon Bay (about 5 hours down the coast).
All went well with the usual minor things to attend to that any true cruiser must attend to.
Someone once said that cruising is "working on your boat" in exotic locations.
We did have a wonderful time visiting with other sailing buddies and just relaxing.
The biggest problems were 1) no wind - so we had to motor both ways and 2) annoying kelp flies - so we got to try out our hatch screens.
I hope you are all well and had a great labor day weekend!
