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.

Merry Christmas 2014 to all our Family and Friends!


Hopefully one of those is appropriate for your choice of celebrating this season of generosity, caring and sharing, wherever our greeting finds you!  

The INTREPID II crew is still at home.  We will snuggle with our 'senior' kitties in front of a cozy wood fire, sipping eggnog, listening to new music or enjoying movies.  Our gift to ourselves is a new tv. Of course, we'll be reading the wide variety of books we've collected for our library.  There will be phone calls home to family and friends, enjoyment of opening cards and readingfamily updates; or receiving greetings online.  The thought is what counts.

Our weather is currently blustery and wet, the sun may shine from time to time; hope it does for you.

So many people have had to deal with challenges this year; health issues, injuries to selves or family or dear pets, hurricanes, workplace issues.  We hope New Year 2015 will bring healing, resolution and happiness to you all.

If our plans unfold as we'd like, the Captain will head to San Carlos mid-January to reconnect with our patient sailboat, biding her time in the storage yard, longing to be splashed once again. Perhaps INTREPID II will actually sail this year!  Kelly has his fingers crossed that this is the year to set sail for the South Pacific.  Our wishes for ourselves are that the planning and preparation do come together so he can continue to follow his cruising dream. (The Admiral is likely to continue to be a full time kitty sitter, flying off to wherever INTREPID II has made landfall for short visits.)

Let us know your plans - we appreciate staying connected.
