Sirena Gorda and Adam's boat, General Trees, sailing out of San Francisco bound for Half Moon Bay. In this photo, wind vane engaged and 15 knots of breeze, with the Golden Gate in my wake... Perfect!
Over 7 months without an update... Sorry about that. It's been a super busy and very productive year so far, most of which has been thoroughly documented at www.ronniesimpsonracing.com. That's where I try to run a professional solo ocean racing campaing. Open Blue Horizon is where I discuss any and all things related to me sailing my crappy 27-foot boat down the coast.
That's right. We're back. Racing/ work season has basically ended for me this year and i've decided to take the plunge once again. We're going cruising. By "we", I mean me and my Cal 2-27 Sirena Gorda, (soon to be Mongo). And by "cruising", I mean sailing down the coast with a very heavy emphasis on surfing. While i've become fairly accomplished in sailing, I am very novice in surfing and improving upon that is a major motivation for this trip.
