Their stories of "two anchors, 5 lines ashore, heeled over 30 degrees in the williwaws" were something to hear, and yet he made it all sound just the normal sort of thing to do.
I've heard of them, but we've never met. I did attend a presentation by Tony and Coryn Gooch on their passage from Tierra del Fuego to Antarctica, and we later spoke on some of their adventures in southern Patagonia. The reinforced the wisdom I've read and heard elsewhere: don't anchor where the trees are bent to the ground and have virtually no leaves or needles. Makes sense to me.

Thank you for your well wishes and kind comments.

You know that, and I know that. My desire is to continue having Sequitur prove that to others.

Thank you for your well wishes and kind comments, Brian.

Just to mention a few things Michael:

First; now that this storm has blown through you might want to check the weather window for heading south. Not to say we love having you here in SF; but the weather after early November is very iffy, and at times it is downright dangerous to even sail out to the SF Bar. So if you want to head south to Mexico and beyond before next spring; now is the time to go.

Also; the Baja Ha-Ha is kicking off in the last week of October; sailing out of San Diego. I know you probably are not registered for the fleet activities; but I'm sure you could tag along and meet many of the people who will be cruising the areas where you will be going. We have dock neighbors who recently set off in their Catalina 38 Mk-I for San Diego; planning to cruise the Sea of Cortez this winter. I can forward your contact info to them if you wish.

One other thing to mention is that if you are hitting 13-15 kts surfing down waves; you could be in danger of a broach or pitchpole. I know a 49' boat is probably very stable and safe feeling; but just be sure you are keeping her on her feet because it could be a really bad day if you had a broach in 15-20' seas with 45kt winds (only you know what the conditions were; I'm not questioning your judgement, only mentioning this in case you were un-aware of any danger). Towing some warps would probably prevent the boat from surfing down waves.

Did you catch the Blue Angels on Sunday?

On the way down, we're stopping in Moro Bay and Long Beach for a few days each to visit friends, so we need only a two-day window for each of those legs.

Thank you, but we prefer to meet others in a more natural way than in great sheep herding exercises like this. Generally, we're out of tune with the lifestyle of many of the members of the flock.

We were perfectly safe and stable. We were not surfing down the faces of the waves; we were simply being accelerated by the swells passing under us. Although I did think of trailing warps, at no time were we anywhere near the need for that. The Jordan series drogue was ready, but conditions were far too benign to even think of deploying it.

We watched the practices on Thursday and Friday from Sausalito and the show on Saturday. Sunday kind of fizzled for us from Sausalito because of the low overcast.
