We had a nice 30 mile sail to Dana Point. There were moderate winds most of the way and we made 4 to 6 knots close hauled under full sail.
This is where Richard Henry Dana, Jr. spent some time dragging cow hides up and down the hill in 1834-36, as chronicled in Two Years Before the Mast. The book shows an amazing view of 19th century sailing and California history before Americans came to power.
We are staying at the Dana Point Yacht Club.
