S/V INTREPID II - Cape Dory Intrepid 40

My photo
Intrepid II is a Cape Dory Intrepid 40 sailboat, hull #2, designed by Chuck Paine and discovered by the Captain in Blue Hill Maine in 2006. The crew are Kelly (Captain) and Carol (Admiral and Blogger). In 2009 INTREPID II embarked on her West Coast journey from Victoria to San Francisco, the Baja Sur Peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez. In 2010/2011, we sailed ifrom Guaymas, south to Bahia Banderas and back. In 2011/2012 she left Guaymas, headed south to La Paz, spent three weeks at anchor on our northward journey and rested on the hard in San Carlos. Her 4th, 5th and 6th seasons were Boat Projects related. Optimistic that there will be more cruising on the horizon!

The Captain is back in San Carlos



The Captain had a tiring, but safe journey by land; he drove for three and a half long days to San Carlos.  Now the boat work begins.  INTREPID II has been moved from dry storage to the works yard at Marina Seca, where he can tackle maintenance and projects.  Kelly will be updating his adventures as he has time and wifi connections; however, we wanted our cruising buddies to know he had arrived and is more than happy to take a few breaks and reconnect with anyone who is still in the San Carlos/Guaymas area.

Back home it is pouring down rain!  At least one of us can enjoy the Mexican sunshine, cervezas and all the other delightful things we so look forward to when we cruise.  It is extremely disappointing that we won't have a 2012-2013 cruising season.  At least our sailboat will have some TLC and be ready for us in the fall.
