S/V INTREPID II - Cape Dory Intrepid 40
- The Intrepid II Crew
- 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!

For those of you who stop by to check if one or both or all three of us have finally headed South to rejoin our languishing INTREPID II....sadly, no! Best laid plans and all that have not unfurled as hoped and the crew is still land-bound and looking out at mostly grey and often drizzly skies.
There is an abundance of green, spring flowers have been blooming for weeks and we continue to tackle projects, only of the house variety, rather than marine related. It could be an interesting spring yard cleaning season as Carol experienced a major allergy attack just going out to photograph her favorite native fawn lilies that bloomed last week. The flower bed tidying is on hold. Kelly is immersed in a weight lifting regime which included him researching and building his own 'contraption' on which to rest his weights as well as very diligently following the weight training exercises.
Rosie searches for the elusive patches of sunlight which actually do appear from time to time and has even poked her nose outside on the deck for a few moments checking on nature's progress. Not warm enough yet for her to ask that we set out the cushions on her favorite lounge chair.
So as we read that Semana Santa is in full swing in San Carlos we wish everyone a Happy Easter and safe travels if you are en route or homeward bound.
