Another few days, another few miles down the coast. Part of me wanted to stay in Half Moon Bay for a few more days to catch some good local surf while the other part of me wanted to get further down the coast. Trying not to get sucked into the comfortable time vortex that Half Moon Bay ended up being (I could spend a while there...), I shoved off on a Wednesday morning at around 9:30 am. The forecast looked right, if not a bit slow. As low pressure moved inland, the light southerly breeze on the coast was expected to die off and get replaced by a filling northwesterly... perfect. The only bad part was the un-expected 16 hour gap between those two events actually taking place. In other words, after some very slow sailing upwind, I flopped around for the better part of a day and then caught the new northwesterly.
Sirena Gorda rocked up at Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club guest dock. Fantastic sail across Monterey Bay.
