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

Photos Recap: Moss Landing and Elkhorn Slough

As we mentioned in our 'quick updates', INTREPID II traveled from Half-Moon Bay after the winds died down (of course -- too much, then too little) and made a very long day trip to the Elkhorn Yacht Club near Moss Landing.  We received a very warm welcome, enjoyed a great dinner and photographed the various wildlife and sea life right on our dockstep which delighted us.

Elkhorn Yacht Club made us welcome

Not what you'd expect near a protected habitat!
