Snug Harbor left her dock at 0600 this morning bound for Catalina Island some 375 miles down the coast. We dodged a couple shellfulls of crew out practicing their rowing in the dark and then two tankers maneuvering in the estuary.
The sun came up on a beautiful, clear and warm day. The forecast calls for 15 knots of wind all day so we expect to get in some good sailing.
As we headed out the Gate we partook of a Snug Harbor tradition, raisenettes. Raisenettes are a concoction of white bread, solidified liquid sugar and a few scattered raisens. Junk food extraordinare that is both delicious and disgusting. We will eat better from now on.
