Re: Catalina!!!

way to go Newport. and I think winds gusting to 35KTS may be why the ten footers were braking

Leaving Catalina...Doesnt look bad right? LOL...



Heavy winds still...main only.



Winds have died down to 15mph or so...open the jib! Mainland!


GPS Speed approaching harbor! The old girl can still make 7 knots with worn sails!

Re: Catalina!!!

Great story...glad you finally got to Catalina. My wife and I were there recently and took a great humvee ride to a lot of those beaches you saw on the side where two harbors were. Saw a lot of Eagles and buffalo too. I was suprised at the lack of larger (trees) vegetation in the interior of the island. Found out that most of the firs and palm trees were actually transplanted by Wrigley (of Chicago fame) when he had the island and used it for a base.

Good pictures. Do you have any of the 15 foot breaking waves?

Sorry. When the wilder stuff was happening I was focused on SAILING! Lol. So I never really capture the big stuff.

wonder why the waves were breaking? I gather the wind and current were both from the north? Barquito
I am really confused like Barquito

Wind from the north, current from the north as you stated, only a jib, jib in the picture does not look close hauled and it would be tough to make headway close hauled into the wind with only a jib

COG shows 7 knots headed north into the wind, holding off a J105 which is a racing boat built for speed ( PHRF ratings for your boat between 130 and 180 depending on model.....J105 is 78 at worst, so much faster.)

15 foot breaking waves but pitcures even with the wind dont even look close to that and certainly not really large breaking waves

Quote:
Open up our jib, and the boat went for 5.5 knots to 7! The wind calmed down a bit and the waves were big but not breaking.
The wind didnt die and the waves didnt get smaller...you were sailing in a different direction so it felt like that


You exuberence is commendable and the way you are taking to this is also inspriational and also a good start to you boating endevors. Your hyperbole well lkets just say it must be because of your excitement which I hope does not diminish, but I for one find your facts dont really bear out. Its good enough that you went on a windy day with good sailing conditions.

Ok. Like I said. I DIDN'T take pics until it was calm. I was closed hauled at the END. If u look I said we stayed north then gybed. I know what I was in. And I said the J/105 CAUGHT us after leaving AFTER us. Didn't I write all that??? I know what a coast guard gale warning is and I know when the harbor master warns of the weather what it means. Sorry to disappoint that I don't have the 15 footer that broke ON TOP of the boat on video. Thx for the kind words though!
