Catalina Island Circumnav...photo intense

Last week Nimfy and I took off to San Diego to meet up with my bro Jasper, wife Flo, and the lil one (jasper jr).Jasper and Flo are veteran So. pacific cruisers getting ready to do it again with kids. Our plan was to cruise and circumnavigate Catalina Island on the CSY 44. we departed at 5pm on Thursday and made our 90 mile passage through the night.
Screenshot of our GPS track

The Lil one. only two years old and already logged over 3000 nautical miles.

Nimfy as we near the Coronado Bridge

it was uneventful except that we had to motor the entire way due to the winds. since there were four of us the watches were no problem and we all got plenty of sleep. we pulled into Avalon at 10 am Friday morning and picked up a mooring for the weekend first come first serve at $32 per night. the harbor patrol will meet you and assign a mooring spot, collect the fee and drop a dye tab directly in your head. (discharge fine is $500 and a one year expulsion from the island.

Flo is totaly at home in her galley and you better leave it alone. shes also expecting a baby girl in September

this is his "smile and say cheese face"


36 lb sea bass caught with live squid

Nimfy and Flo washing their hair.


Avalon Hillside, note the "Wrigley Mansion" up top (white house upper left)

Jasper Bending the law

Nimfy and the countryside

Nimfy and I on the exact spot where we were married




Flo's cousin from San Francisco met us in Avalon and spent a couple of days of cruising. we left Avalon on Sunday morning and headed towards Two Harbors

it was a five hour trip with beautiful weather.

The lil one is always harnessed while underway




We rounded the northern part of the island and headed to Cat harbor

The memorial where the sailors were killed in the helicopter crash last week

Dinghy Ride to shore

we dropped hook in cat harbor in 75' with 2 to 1 scope. the 66lb Bruce held quite well

.

we had a good time playing on the beach and said fairwell to Claire (flo's cousin) and left cat harbor Tuesday morning

we had descent wind out of the NW on the trip back to San Diego averaging 6 knots of speed



we have more pics but i think i already pic'd you to the max.

we had a great time drinking pina colada's on the beach and being amongst friends and family. the only problem we had on this trip was the roller furl went south on us so we had to use the staysail. next cruise...La Paz!

Thanks!

I miss Catalina. I decided to move to Southern California after a cruise to Two Harbors on a friend's Cal 2-24. We anchored in 75 feet of water at 3 AM. I got up in the morning, and couldn't believe that I could see the anchor on the bottom!

A special place.

Pirate,
Thanks for posting the pics of your trip. Looks like fun was had by all. Was that the Californian in the background?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
