Happy New Year from the INTREPID II crew -- we wish you the very best for 2010: health, happiness, love and laughter, excellent anchorages and smooth sailing, peace and prosperity.
No celebrating for us last night, however, as we've been staying quiet - resting, reading, taking lots of vitamins, drinking pots of green tea and a few other medicinal remedies. We've both caught different variations of "whatever is out there" and hope to shake it soon. It actually was quite quiet on the docks last evening although we could hear the fire works from the Magote and a few pistol shots as well, but the Tylenol was working and we only welcomed in cruisers' midnight (9 pm).
The latest "norther" is slowing down a bit -- we had gusts over 20 knots in the marina and overnight felt the swells - good practice for when we head out next week, if all goes as planned. There will be quite the exodus in this next week with some heading to the islands and some doing the southern crossing. La Paz exercises quite a pull on most people, making it hard to untie the dock lines, but there are anchorages to explore and sailing to be had.
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. Season 7 - we are hoping to cruise again at long last.
