One if by land, three if by sea

Saturday May 16

We left Santa Cruz by 7am. It will be a 10-11 hour sail to San Francisco. We are all hoping there will be no fog when we sail under the Golden Gate Bridge!

Santa Cruz has two lighthouses. Walton light on the Breakwater , and the Santa Cruz Lighthouse.

Along the way we also saw the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, on Wednesday we saw it by land.

By land
By sea

We watched the fog roll over the hills coming from San Francisco Bay spilling into the ocean.

Just before 6pm we sailed under the a Golden Gate Bridge! The tide and current were briskly flowing into the bay, our SOG (speed over ground) was greater than 8 knots. Then we rounded Alcatraz.
