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.

Winter Wonderland on Vancouver Island - Friday November 26

Winter wonderland at home
Here is a photo of our current weather situation at home to ensure those of you already on your boats and in warmer climates really appreciate your atmospheric situation!  Vancouver Island, B.C. and most of the Prairies were hit all week with some of the coldest temperatures and heaviest snowfalls in a very long time.

It is sad to hear that there have been fatalities due to the driving conditions. I'm not sure if this can all be attributed to 2010 being a "La Nina" year.  It will be interesting to see what this cruising season holds for us in the Sea of Cortez.
