Re: Southbound

just remember that you really dont wanna sail hot water until after oct ends--- which means-- all the way to mag bay is ok. south of that is dangerous depending on what named critter is being formed and what direction it will take.
when you are in san diego, go to downwind marine-- they are cool folks and knowledgeable-- have a cruising guide for the specific trip you are planning. tell em i sent ye. they have coffee and donuts weds at 1000 every week..

Re: Southbound

Thanks everyone - We made it!

SV Estrellita 5.10b: Day 6: Sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge

We are at a mooring at the Sausalito Yacht Club right now and we'll have a planning session this afternoon to plan our Bay Area experience

Thanks for the advice on the "warm water before Nov 1". It fits the info we already have and our tentative plan. We'll probably move into Mexico mid-October but not rush South.

We'll look for Patricia Belle.

Re: Southbound

Liv,

Enjoy the ride and wonderful adventure. Whether you go east or west makes no difference, both locations, Caribbean or South Pacific are beautiful.

Of course the south Pacific is downwind.. (cough)

Re: Southbound

Congrats Livia, that view of the bridge is so familiar to me and I loved Sausalito. Sounds like you are having fun and enjoying the trip.

Re: Southbound

Thanks everyone - We're having a great time in SF so far. We are taking kiteboarding lessons, have been having visitors, meeting boaters and generally enjoying city life after being in a bunch of remote locations in British Columbia.
