It was really blowing out under the bridge and bumpy waves. Serious sailing. Then in a matter of minutes the wind dropped off and we took out the other reef. The direction of the wind would not let us head toward Hawaii and we ended up drifting up the coast past Stinson Beach and at the moment we are headed for Point Reyes at a speed of about 4 knots in a wind of 5-6 knots. We have a lot of company, especially the double handers in tiny fast little boats. They are sort of zipping around us, but aren't really going anywhere either.
We went inside the Bolinas buoy. At one point Kathy's iPad said we should be in 60 feet of water and so we were.
Sure not like any thing I have ever seen before. We'll keep you posted. Bill
