San Diego Cruise 2017
Santa Margarita Yacht Club Memorial Day cruise to Silver Gate Yacht Club in San Diego Bay, 27 May 2017 – 29 May 2017
After a casual skipper’s meet and greet six boats departed Oceanside and headed down the coast early Saturday morning. Two blue whales, a sunfish and several pods of feeding dolphins were spotted. The wind was steady west/northwest fourteen-sixteen knots with two-foot swell and the wind chop made for a fast and challenging sail.
We were graciously met at the docks with beverages and help to tie off, then a casual dinner was enjoyed at the clubhouse. After a relaxing weekend enjoying individual and group activities at Silver Gate’s beautiful facility we set sail early Monday morning.
The winds were light and motor sailing through the fog and light sea mist was the landscape for the morning. All boats and souls made it safely to Oceanside and were grateful to be home!
