San Diego – Friday, Oct. 15, 2010

We made it to San Diego! We left Oceanside about 8:00 in the mist. Motor sailed 37 miles down the coast and into San Diego Bay. Our last U.S. harbor for a long time. On the way we saw pods of dolphins about every 5 miles. Some of them were close enough to take pictures.

As we entered San Diego Bay we saw a Coast Guard boat coming out with its lights flashing. We assumed they were after someone. We were very surprised when they turned around and came up beside us! They asked us to move to the far right of the channel. Then we saw the Submarine right ahead of us. There were a few guys on the topside. I don’t think I’d want to be riding in one of those, but it was great to watch it go by.

We’ll be staying in San Diego for 10 days, getting ready for the Baja Ha Ha to start on Oct. 25.


  1. Glad you didn't hit the sub - how funny! Have a good time preparing for the Ha Ha. You are almost there!

  2. Hi,

    Glad you guys made it to the Baja Haha! We are the couple who were in the slip next to you in Dana Point aboard Windekind. Finally got on your BLOG. We enjoyed meeting you both and plan to follow you on your journey. Also, I will figure out a way to send you the photos I took.
