Petaluma Overnight Sail Print Email
Written by JohnPaul

Most people only get to dream of days like SEA members got to experience on their voyage to Petaluma August 22, 2009.

The day was beyond blissful. Downwind sailing north across San Pablo Bay with a gentle sun and rocking water. Then, deep into the mouth of the Petaluma River, Daisy, Summer Solstice and Fayaway journeyed twelve miles witnessing undisturbed marshland life of lazy pelicans, swans and vast waving grasslands. Finally a large bridge opened wide, bells and horns sounding, to welcome the threesome into the cradle of the Turning Basin, Downtown Petaluma. That night skippers and crew relished the spirits and cuisine offered in the charming town, not unlike fantasies found in faraway Mediterranean villages. But, like all good dreams, there is a wake up time.

Leaving Petaluma at the end of a strong ebb and the beginning of a 3.1 flood is not for the faint of heart. Perhaps the five vultures perched on an abandoned vessel on the river's edge suggested a warning. Or, various vessels hailing mayday in The SF Bay led to the tantalizing of senses, of which, all five were soon charged once the threesome motored and raised sails into into San Pablo Bay's 30 knot winds. The boats then tacked south for six plus hours, bashing and splashing against waves and currents, saturating some hoping to be protected under dodgers. Aboard Fayaway, "Mom, the boat is leaking!" is not exactly what a sailing mom wants to hear, followed by shrieks and screams, but fortunately gleeful sounds this time, of youngsters discovering a leaking hatch, the bay water wetting their cozy nest in the v-berth.

And, from Summer Solstice the next day: "Deeply nautical experience on SF bay. Bliss one day, toil and double-reefed the next! The company was great, the setting terrific and the foulies essential!" At press time, news from Daisy had not yet emerged. We know she returned safely in one piece, and we can guess skipper and crew are still recovering.

Thanks to Skippers John Paul, Bill and Mark /Barbara (you decide that one) for skippering boats. Also, thanks to crew for not getting boats stuck in the mud and supplying merry time.

Big Full Moon January 10 Print Email

This Saturday night, Jan. 10th, another perigee Moon is coming. It's the biggest full Moon of 2009, almost identical to the one that impressed onlookers in Dec. 2008.
