On Our Way

VALIS has begun her trek to points north! At 8:30 AM PDT Monday morning, VALIS and her crew (Dave, Jim, Rich, and Paul) left Sausalito and headed out through the Golden Gate. We are now about 10 miles due west of Point Bonita. We are sailing roughly 5 kts on a course of 240 deg magnetic. While this is going in the wrong direction, given the wind direction it is our best option as we try to get around Point Reyes.
We’ve seen dolphins, sea lions, many birds, and a few crab pot floats. The wind is 10 kts from 315 deg mag. The seas are fairly mild, perhaps 4 ft (but we are still shielded by Point Reyes.
We are feeling good, and enjoying th afternoon.
More later, Paul
