Sailing on the catamaran S/V Savannah
Shortly before we left La Cruz for sunny Seattle, Josh and I were treated to our first catamaran ride on our friend's sailing vessel, S/V Savannah. Andy, Monica, and their son Jake will be leaving La Cruz in March for the islands of the south Pacific Ocean.
With Monica and Jake in the United States visiting family, we offered to participate in a day-long "sea trial" in Bandaras Bay.
Andy, Josh, myself, and the autopilot shared the steering duties for the day.
After a few hours of sailing, whale watching, and beer sampling, we determined with absolute certainty that S/V Savannah is ready for the islands of the south Pacific Ocean.
