After the day of rest & re-charging (still 100% solar, he did not even pack a wall charger), Charles is back on the road. The ride from Santa Cruz to Moss Landing was gorgeous, and since Charles and I collectively bought two boats in Moss Landing, he had lunch goals. Phil’s has the best fish and chips in the area, and is a really fun, casual place to stop. When we bought Manzanita in 2015, our last meal before sailing up the coast to Berkeley was at Phil’s.
After lunch, the wind was southerly and incredibly strong – even powered, downhill he was only going 10-15 MPH. With the headwinds, it was slow going, but he made it to Monterey before sunset and decided not to push further.
