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. Season 7 - we are hoping to cruise again at long last.

The City by the Bay - Sept. 25

Kelly called at 11 am Thursday, September 25th, to say "find a web cam focused under the Golden Gate Bridge and we'll wave as we sail through". Exciting event for both of us, but the only web cam I could locate in a hurry did not give a close enough view to distinguish vessels. The cruisers had some fog leaving Drakes Bay, but entered San Francisco Bay in clear skies.  They picked up moorings at the Sausalito Yacht Club, where Kalagan and Dolphin Tales have reciprocal privileges (I understand those privileges include fairly rolly nights, but free ones). Sausalito is at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Location:  37 degrees - 51' - 24" N and 122 degrees - 28' - 41" W

Kelly is spending a few days in the Bay area seeing some of the sights, while we try from both Victoria and San Francisco to arrange an economical way home. On short notice, fares are quite high, including extra charges for a 2nd bag. Kelly has all his foul weather gear, sailing boots and other cruising equipment, as well as a duffel bag of clothes to contend with.  Stay tuned for his version of the journey, once he's home and settled back in.
