I did mention an example of the offshoring I have in mind, the Pacific Cup (California->Hawaii), but perhaps I should have provided a few more. Another one would be the Coastal Cup (San Francisco to Catalina - can be much tougher than it sounds some years). I also would like to make a yearly trip with my wife from San Francisco to SanDiego/No.Mexico and back.
For the time being, I have no plans to do anything more extensive. That might change as I gain more confidence experience with short-handed passages of medium scope.
