About 2 weeks ago, at Seafair I was invited to go sailing down the west coast from Anacortes, WA to San Fransisco, CA. After getting some details hammered out, I am set to go on August 17th at 10am. I am crewing with Jared and Amanda on S/V Friday, Hunter 31′.
This is going to be my first sail longer than 3 days and also to a new area, all the way down the west coast to another state! I finally have an excuse to buy some gear I’ve been putting off!
I am borrowing tether sets from a friend, so that is a cost I can avoid for this trip. I also bought a set of bibs last month so that is also coming with me. All my gear fits in my hiking bag and my gear bag. My food fit in my collapsible cooler, which I already delivered to the boat!
