Good luck on the trip. Our boat is currently lying in Van Isle (near Sidney). We plan on taking her to SF in about a year. We'll be crossing tracks with you as Beth (wife) Marina(daughter age 10) and Keegan (son age 9) will be going upwind at 55 mph+ to go sailing. We intend to keep the boat up there for anther 12 months and then sail down the coast thru Kalifornia and on to Mexico
. Good luck with your trip. Let us know how everthing goes. I'll try and get my kids
to read your blogsite so we know how kids
do on passages.
