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.

Almost Summer Solstice

Wistfully glancing at all the posts from our cruising friends who are actually out there on the water across the globe.....safe travels and fair winds!

The INTREPID II Crew continues to stay occupied and hopefully productive these past months, although very little of our efforts are boat related.  We've attended Bluewater Cruising meetings when we can, met up with folks who have returned to the Island and registered for a refresher weather course in mid July.  The other link to boating is when the Captain announces yet again that a necessary tool or reference book which he could make use of on a travel trailer project is "on the boat".

Our current focus is to ensure our 28 foot travel trailer is functioning well with all the requisite systems tested and behaving as they should.  At the moment there are some challenges.  Our goal is to 'head east" during the coming summer to visit family and friends.  Fingers crossed.

Wishing everyone a fabulous summer on land or at sea.
