Sailing From Santa Cruz

September 12 - 13, 2003

 GATITA was berthed in Santa Cruz for a few weeks. After some fun-filled days - it was time to head back home.

I stayed at the boat overnight - and started early next morning. It was just before Sunrise.

Santa Cruz small-craft harbor is beautiful. There was not a breath of wind as I went around the Natural Bridges park and the Sun started peeping over the hills.

Sunrise over Monterey hills


Unlike the last couple of times - this was a bright, warm and clear day. I saw a bunch of powerboats out and about. Including this fishing boat.


"Ray" the ST6001+ does a good job. Vmg = 6.5 Knots


Fishing boat - close up

That's a big line drum


Got to Pillar Point harbor in Half Moon Bay by the afternoon
