Hello from directly in between Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz island!!
Two pretty barren pieces of real estate, but somehow pretty nice to look at today. Picture perfect conditions. Light winds continue but are forecast to build to 15 – 20 knots tonight. Should round Conception at about 7pm this evening. Probably not a bad time to get around.
Next report from there.

PS. Had the bolt that holds the second batten from the top break and drop in pieces on the deck this afternoon right at noon. Not a good moment to see nuts and bolts falling from the rig and bouncing on your deck. This has happened before. It’s a full length batten and there must be some pretty impressive forces at work up there. Replaced the bolt without losing any time/distance.
