Finally, Some Wind


Southern California has had Santa Ana wind conditions for a couple weeks. Very little of this wind has made it 25 miles out here to Catalina. This means it has been 80 to 85F and flat seas. Today we have an east wind at 17 to 20+ miles an hour, creating some small white caps in the harbor.

It is a bit harder to row the dinghy, but still doable.

Hopefully, the wind will hold for our trip to Long Beach tomorrow. We have not sailed in over 6 knots since we headed to Santa Barbara. A local did tell me they had 10 foot waves in the harbor a couple weeks ago. One has to be careful for what one wishes for.
