Saturday was to be mid 70’s with 5-10 kts. from the SE. Well, it was probably closer to 15-18 by 4 o’clock in the afternoon. It was a beautiful sail to the west and we ended at Redfish Pt. There was a group of Catalina owners that also ended at Redfish Pt. for the weekend. There were 4 of them of which we knew 1. They got together Saturday night and had a Sunday morning Coffee and coffee cake in which they were nice enough to invite us. We reciprocated by giving tours on Nightwatch. They were a very warm and friendly group and we hope to see more of them out there.

The cocktails were great, the steak excellent and the wine perfect. It was 68 degrees when I got up Sunday morning. Perfect sleeping. We still have the encloser up, so it was nice and warm in the cockpit for breakfast.

One small problem. Wind dead on the nose going home. I was just finishing putting the boat to bed when the wind shifted to the SW. That would have been a perfect broad reach home. Oh well, the weekend was hard to beat.
