Voyage to the Coronados May 2007
|Not from this voyage, but a picture of friend Jeff on a race
Before he got sea sick!
|Keaving Mission Bay Monday around noon.
Light winds, very calm seas.
Great to see some sun after weeks of May Gray.
|View of the Point Loma penninsula.|
|Point Loma in sight. Sailing South to the Coronados is
usually a down wind run under spinnaker.
Today saw South winds.
I had to tack all day to get down there.
|North Island in sight after a beat of about 17 miles.
Called Isla de Corpus Christy, it resembles a body draped in a shroud.
|Reaching South Island with Roca de Media in view.|
|Pulling into my anchorage.
Made it the whole way with no motor.
About 25 miles, arriving around 6:30 PM.
|Up at 06:30 the next morning, I found east winds making this
anchorage a rocky lee shore.
Time to get going.
These are the tuna pens, a Bluefin Tuna farm.
You can see the pens on the horizon, center right.
The barge houses the lonely crew.
|Leaving the south end of South Island.|
|View back to the island as I worked my way South in ultra
light winds that seemed to come from all angles.
Clearly, the island messes up the prevailing NW winds for a long way to the SE.
|Hard to see, but I worked my way south until I was off
Rosarita, it was about 11 AM.
Winds still very light.
Switching to the NW.
I was 30 miles from home.
Time to start back.
|Meeting up with old friends off SD1, about 3 miles outside of
You can see North Island in the distance.
I sailed all the way home, averaged 4 knots, arrived about 04:30 PM.
That was a 10 hour day at sea.
