3/29, 1800hrs - San Diego to San Francisco #1

375 miles to San Francisco!

Chris and I shoved off from the San Diego Yacht Club this afternoon at about 2pm. Conditions are great. 8 knots of wind, unfortunately right from where we are heading.

The navy put on a great show as we sailed out the channel with aprox. 6 fighters taking off and buzzing us on their way to who knows where.

Then about two hours later the Coast Guard came by in one of their fancy new helicopters. The approached from astern and flew by very slowly and very close at about mast height. No doubt checking us out and making sure that our intentions were pure.

Sunshine, no clouds, winds 10 knots below forecast. It's all good here!!

-Jim and Chris
