Catalina Island

Latitudes & Attitudes Seafaring Magazine sponsored a Cruiser’s Weekend at Two Harbors on Catalina Island this past weekend. Free seminars by and for boaters who have an interest in cruising. I was already interested but when I found out about the free food and beverages I said “we’re there”!

31 miles each way across the San Pedro Channel from Newport Harbor. We left as early as we could Friday morning and took our time returning Sunday. Southern California’s fickle wind even cooperated and let us sail for a while on the return. Add five whale sightings and warm sunny skies to make a successful weekend!

Thanks to our friends Don & Jill who agreed to come along with us and show us the ropes (I mean lines!).  They each have between 500 and 1,000 days of cruising experience and added to our knowledge base tremendously!
