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.

Roadtrip to San Carlos - January 2015

Hang in there INTREPID II!  Our land vessel "Rojo Grande" is finally heading south. The Captain is hoping for 'smooth sailing' on the highways and byways of Oregon, California, Arizona and into Sonora, Mexico.  The snowdrops, crocuses and buds on the red flowering currant are hopeful signs of Spring showing up here in Victoria. However, there is not enough warmth for my liking. It is winter weather: damp, chilly, with heavy fog in spots.

Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow;  Kelly is hoping that his hotel has great reception and a comfortable spot to unwind and enjoy the game. The Seattle Seahawks have considerable support from our part of the world.

If 'the plan' for this land voyage goes accordingly, INTREPID II will be moved from dry storage into the works yard on Tuesday, February 3rd  She is in need of much overdue TLC and maintenance. Hopefully a chance to feel the splash of sea water around her hull and an opportunity to actually sail? This is our 6th 'cruising season' and we hope that there are some sea voyages to come in the months ahead.
