Re: Sailing up Coast of California
FWIW, my wife's cousin and his wife sailed their Catalina 42 from Santa Barbara to S.F. - took them 8 days and she said she will never sail out past the Golden Gate again.
Not a trip to be taken lightly.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
