A Cal 20 sailed the Singlehanded TransPac (SF to Hawaii) last year...

Correction on that Ranger 33; I think heavy winds were predicted; it was rough for several days out there. I have a feeling that they thought it was not as bad as predicted; then it got a bit worse than predicted and they had nowhere to go but to try and cross the SF Bar.
