San Francisco! 6 days later…

San Fransisco,  Here we come!!

As soon as we passed Duxbury point,  life on-board returned to normal! From 35knots of winds we went back to 15 knots left now with only one meter height waves,  we were on our last leg of the trip. Finally,  Bonita channel was close,  and I had fun tracking its buoy to the entrance as it might be the last time I rode a mono-hull.

While we slowed down to wait for the flood tide, *R* thought it would be the perfect condition to practice “heaving to” (also a good way to see how the boat would take it). Needless to add, for us catamaran owner it is an unknown practice as our boat doesn’t heave to, nonetheless a very handy maneuver and the boat took on the motion very easily and steadily.  Shortly after,  and with one last look over our shoulder to the Pacific Ocean,  we turned left to admire the dominant Golden gate bridge. And that it when we all went on a Paparazzi frenzy, starting to take numerous photos of each couple and celebrated this memorable moment with joy.

And as we were traveling under the bridge, right on cue the kite surfers came along and gave us a demonstration of their ability. However during the show, one of them issued a mayday  due to his line failure, it was a rude reminder that at no time you are safe.


At this very moment I looked at *V* in the eyes and popped the question : – I didn’t propose, but instead…

“Would you like to do this on our boat one of these days?”

And without any delay, she said :” Yes!”

This little sentence here could change the course of our life as we know it…

Question is: When??




Having reciprocal with the Sausalito Yacht club, we settled at one of their mooring balls, we sat down and enjoyed the view, all got under the shower… it was completed we could relax, finally. It was now time to celebrate. And, for the next two days we re-discover this beautiful city, boy! did we ever celebrate! We re-connected with Livia and Carol from SV Estrellita, what a day! In the end we all found our way to the wine store in the ferry terminal and enjoyed a few bottles of wine, cheese and baguette. But what happens in SF stays in SF, “‘Cause whatever happens ‘s g’nna happen there!” (thank you Cptain Ron!) you should have joined in the fun, lastly another word of wisdom : don’t leave a cheese platter half eaten near the cruiser’s table or they may ask for it!…

All that fun, and little snowlines the next day provide me with 6 islands bonus card! Oh yes I am using all the joker cards I had…
