Ready for throttle up

By Rob

This last year has been a whirlwind of activity in preparation for our sail South.
Despite our overuse of technology, Nancy and I use a simple "year at a glance" calendar to visually organize our family schedules.   Here's the one from our home office, messy and colorful.  Notice how the schedule eases up after our departure!  I'm sure we'll need to adapt to a slower pace..... but we are up to the challenge!

Today we drop off our car, enjoy our favorite noodle house, check out of Sausalito Yacht Harbor, and finish stowing and organizing the boat.

Time to put away the piano and stop drilling holes in the boat.

Tomorrow we leave at 11:30!


  1. Hey Rob and Nancy - we wish you a very safe and wonderful Bon Voyage. You guys are an inspiration and we hope to follow in your footsteps someday. Thanks for the great party at CYC last weekend.
    I will be doing the SF Perpetual Cup tomorrow morning so unfortunately we will miss the sending off party but we will be watching for pics right here.
    Be safe - and let us know when you need a place to stay on return trips.

  2. Thanks Mark. We will be routing for CYC on Saturday!

  3. So Rob - does your route to the GGB from Sausalito actually go through Tiburon - or are you rooting for CYC :-)

  4. You may wanna check your chartplotter if it says routing from Sausalito to GGB goes via Tiburon :-)
