It’s November, and Scott and I are in Alameda, CA at the Marina Village Yacht Harbor. We’ve been here for almost a week, awaiting sail repairs, a re-packing of our life raft, and the arrival of our new dingy.
We sold most of our stuff on Craigslist and eBay, moved everything we wanted to keep into storage, and gave back the keys to our San Francisco apartment on October 23rd.
On Oct 26th, we left our slip at Pier 39 Marina, pretty stoked to be leaving that very rolly place that frustrated Scott to no end and left me and Sam the Cat seasick. From there, we went to KKMI in Richmond to have work done on our rigging.
While waiting in Alameda, we’re finishing up our preparations, provisioning, making repairs, and readying ourselves to leave the bay.
We had planned to head out the gate mid October. We’re a little behind our plans but hope to be setting sail shortly, within the next two weeks, if possible. Keep your fingers crossed!
