Heading South for Baja Rally on Serendipity

This was sent in by Fred W Gibson on October 17th.
Ahoy Maties! Some pics of Serendipty heading out for San Diego and then the Baja HaHa Rally to Cabo San Lucas starting Oct 28th. Captain Steve, crew members Dave (just to San Diego), Matt and Fred W. We didn’t have a Bridge and Board quorum but we discussed club business anyway….

Captain cooked us breakfast and then in the evening baked cookies. Forgot the hot chocolate mix to go with them but picked that up in Santa Cruz. No mutiny here!

The Essers in their boat are heading for the Rally and leaving one day behind us.

Good representation for our little TIYC.

The Tigress “turns left”

“Where will you go?”
“Out the Gate and hang a left…”

That’s been the plan and the dream for a very long time. And that’s what we did.

Beautiful San Francisco Bay put on a show, sparkling in the morning light just to make sure we’d know what we are missing. There was a big sloppy swell running off the coast – a bit of a bronco ride. Tigress took it in stride. The bilges and Elena’s baking supplies are still dry. It seemed like any other daysail, except the dock box is empty and the mail forwarded.

After anchoring at Half Moon Bay we opened a special bottle of wine and toasted new adventures. And maybe a nap. We’re anchored in a beautiful sheltered spot near the Maverick’s surf spot and God’s golf tee.

Tonight we’ll decide where and when we go next, or we’ll decide to decide another day.

We miss you already.
