Wednesday , May 5 Happy Cinco de Mayo, Flashback one year ago today we were in Santa Barbara, California with John and Joy with Margaritas and Taco pie!
120 miles to go!!, we should arrive Thursday morning.
We had good winds last night so we went with it. Cruising 7-8 knots most of the night.
Lots of rain mid-day. The wind hit 29 knots at the start then dropped to 5. The squall took the wind away.
