Great sail!

I sent the earlier email too soon!

Right after we rounded Palos Verdes Peninsula the wind shifted and picked up speed. We had a great sail for the last 3 hours into the Isthmus at Catalina. Winds were 12 to 15 from 50 degrees to starboard. A great close hauled/close reach. We were making faster than motoring 7.5 to 8 knots! A lovely afternoon.

This was the best sailing so far in our trip.

We grabbed a mooring and took the shore boat into Doug's Harbor reef and had our Buffalo Milk.... It was better than I remembered, but much more fat and creme! It's made from Vodka, Creme de Cacao, Creme de Minth, Kalua, whipped cream with a bit of nutmeg on top... OY! Tasty but far too rich. We then switched to beer.

That's the report for this evening!
