Leg 2 - Santa Cruz to Santa Catalina
Leg 2 - Santa Cruz Island to Santa Catalina Island
February 4 2007
62.9 nm/13.3 hrs
Let's get up at midnight even though we are both really sick with nasty colds. Our rule is to always arrive at our destination during the
day. We are underway by 1:00 am for the 13 hr passage to Catalina. Only lost one of the winch handles to King Neptune this time,
damn. We checked and re-checked the weather reports. Light winds and seas are on our back. Thank God. The dolphins are even
leading our way under the full moon past Anacapa Island. It was a lovely first sunrise at sea. Motor/sailed the entire way. Reached
Isthmus, Catalina at 2:00 pm. Took a mooring in Cherry Cove. Winter sailing has it's advantages. We are the only boat in the cove.
Very tired and happy our first night passage wasn't all that scary after all.

A really great kickback kinda place. We took
the dingy over for showers and discovery. The
island is only 1/2 mile wide here so we walked
to the other side to see Cat Harbor.

We had the only boat in the cove. Very cozy.
