Leg 1 (Oct 4 to Oct 30): Bay Trials, Sailing from San Francisco to San Diego
On October 4th, 2006, just before 4PM on a gray drizzly day, we left our slip at Loch Lomond Marina. It was surreal, we had been clandestinely living there (the term is 'sneakaboard' rather than 'liveaboard') for almost a month. Our schedule had slipped by a precious three days with stupid last-minute projects.
In the end we snuck off without a dock party, without shaking hands, without promising to write. We wove to a few friends as we motored out into the channel. We found a little wind, raised the sails, and were off. It was awesome.
