San Diego Bay w/Kevin, Dave Anne and Scott Martin
Dave, and his wife and son, Anne and Scott,
joined Kevin and me for another sail out of San Diego bay
to see the Star of India. This is the second day of the only weekend
when the Star takes sail each year, and so we were really lucky to
be out sailing with her on the ocean.
We sailed out at a good 7 knots in somewhat cloudy weather but the
seas were calm and the wind was just right as we came about off the
Star of India and then followed her back into the bay. She looked grand
under full sail! We also saw a number of other Tall Ships and a
Navy Frigate along the way.
As we returned to the bay, and the wind died, a moderate
Fog descended and I got my first experience with the limited
visibility thereof. I also realized at that time that a
GPS down on the chart table doesn't do much good. We made our
way in by following the marks and some other boats, but in the
future, I'll be sure to have a GPS at the helm!
We brought in sails and docked without incident as the sun set
behind the foggy hills of Point Loma.
