The coastal conditions have remained high – high winds, gusts, waves, and periods – so we are catching calm enough weather windows for each successive sail.
Trip Summary – 5/04/2022-5/05/2022
27 hours on the water. We left in dense fog & stayed in dense fog until we were a few nautical miles from the Morro entrance. Many of the coastal areas like Big Sur, notoriously beautiful, were completely obscured.
Not exactly the conditions we would have wanted – wind tended towards too light and directionally indecisive, Charles got quite sick, but the boat did great in significant swell (10-12 feet every 8 seconds and 2 ft wind waves).
Finally getting visibility of the Morro, as the clouds were clearing and the fog lifting, was incredibly rewarding, and we were greeted by a family of grey whales spouting nearby.
