Coastal Passage Making Class, March 9-11, 2012

103 NM over two days, max speed 9.8 kts, started at 7:35 am on Saturday and were back at the docks in Sausalito at 15:30 on Sunday

Even though we weren’t on Cool Change, I thought I would post our Club Nautique Coastal Passage Making trips here because they are always quite the adventure.  Rick and I went out on the 2006, 41-foot Hunter “Anne’s Turn” with three other classmates and an instructor down to Half Moon Bay and back.  We anchored out in Richardson Bay on Friday night, then left early Saturday morning to motor up the Bonita Channel, out to the Farallones and then head down to Half Moon Bay for the night.  Rick and I both served as “crew” on this trip.  Larry was the instructor, Mikhail was testing as student skipper, Eric as Navigator, and Roberto as Jr. Navigator.  It was a foggy and cold day on the way down, and we dodged crab pots the whole way.  Eric did a great job navigating via radar alone, into the Half Moon Bay protected anchorage.  Seas and wind were moderate.  A good time was had by all, and we learned something too!
