4/24/10 - Finally Gone.

We finally did it. We finally set sail. It turned out to be a beautiful day. We left the Police Dock in San Diego around 8:45. We pulled up the sails around Coronado Islands. At first there wasn’t much wind but by mid morning we had 6 or 7 knots and lots of sunshine. Jake got his first taste of seasickness. Literally. This is the first time he’s ever thrown up so imagine his surprise. Yuck. Poor kid. But luckily, that would be the only time on this maiden voyage. We caught three Bonita. We threw two back and had the biggest one for supper the next few days. While I was cooking dinner we had dolphins swimming on our bow. Very cool. I’ve burned dinner for lots of different reasons but never because I got distracted by the dolphins!

I had my first night watch. I’ll write more about that later, but it went ok. The next day was not quite as sunny, but the wind picked up and we made good time. On track to make it to Isla Guadalupe on Monday.
