The April 26 Dana Point Island club sail was a real blowout!
What I mean is the wind was kicking up to 19 mph before we started out and was continuing to increase though out the afternoon sail. So much fun! First we enjoyed Dana Point Jet Ski barbeque ribs with potluck dishes provided by all. We discussed safety and upcoming events.
Then eleven Adventure Islands and Tandem Islands headed out for a loop round the harbor and then out to the red buoy to get the feel of high wind and swells. With a strong westerly wind, the conditions in the harbor were perfect with the wind coming straight down the outside channel for the upwind leg and straight down the inside channel for the downwind leg.
We were supposes to loop the harbor twice but only a few made the second loop because sailing around the harbor opening near the buoy was a blast with the wind and swells. No one ventured further out to sea due to a westerly wind and a south swell that really mixed it up. All in all it was a great day of food, fellowship, and sailing.
Special thanks to DPJS for the terrific event support.
Look forward to see you all next time!
