How are you? I hope everything is fine. I think about you a lot and all those times sailing on the bay and beyond. I miss it! What I learned from you on those trips has been invaluable. I know I have said this before. I recently went through the Papagayos winds for two six hour day of 35k gusting to 45k but everything was fine because it was no worse than time off Monterrey or half moon bay. Right now Iam motor sailing, the sun just set, off the coast of Costa Rica headed to the gulf of Nicoya. Most of the day was a good sail about 30 degrees off a 12k breeze, now its about five knots. I will go on through the nite and meet my buddy boat friend someplace in the gulf. Tom Abbott contacted me about doing the crossing to Tahiti haven't heard back for sure but I hope he decides to come.
Take care, don
