San Luis Obispo Bay in sight

June 6, 2010 18:30PST
Position: 35°09.5951 N 120°44.8065 W
Underway toward San Luis, CA with about 6nm to go.

Wind: 32-36 knots (Gale conditions)
Seas: 10-12 feet at a period of 10 seconds and breaking.
Water temp: 49.1F

Wanted to quickly report we've passed the Missile test danger area and that 'Frontier Patrol' has reopened danger areas 1 & 2. The Missile test was a success, however we didn't see anything which is probable for the best.

LightSpeed is doing an awesome job of keeping us comfortable and happy while a gale begins to bare her teeth outside. The fine hulls and significant bridge deck clearance keep us riding over the top of the frigid foaming crests with only a very occasional slap to a hull. It's a wild ride, but nothing to complain about whatsoever. At the moment we are munching on a snack of popcorn and counting down the hours to our arrival in San Luis Obispo Bay.
