Santa Cruz Whale Watching

The crew from NASA Ames Sailing Club in search of the elusive whale! March 13 was just one of the many great sails aboard a Catalina 34 chartered from Pacific Yachting & Sailing in Santa Cruz. Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales this trip, but we did see 2 or 3 dolphins just off our stern, and a few seals!

Pictured back row; Dawn Evans, Stan Phillips, and Doug (Dawn's "little brother"). Front row; Shirley Burek, Becky Hooey, Lorraine DeGarmo, new member Joyce Barrett, and Brian Gore. Photo was taken by Deanna, a friend of Shirley's.

Jack Frost Mid-Winters

All in all, we had a pretty good time with the 5 race series. Any day on the Bay, sailing with friends and family, is a good day indeed!

Friday's in Redwood City

Our Friday afternoon sails out of Redwood City Marina are fun, relaxing, and a great way to end the week. We plan to do them year round as long as the weather is good.
