At the end of October, Captain Jon sailed with a couple of high school buddies, Eric and Kip. Along for the ride were Eric’s daughter Lauren and her beau Carsten. The sights were amazing: planes, sea life, people fishing, submarines, birds and boats.
Even though it was a bit chilly, a great time was had by all and they proved that summer is NOT the only time to SAILSOUTHERNCAL!!!

Unfortunately, Carsten didn’t get a picture of the “ghost fog” that came shooting off Point Loma on the return from Mission Bay. The visibility suddenly dropped from five miles to fifty feet! Had it not been for the crack navigational skills of Captain Jon, the crew could have been in irons in the kelp beds off Point Loma, or worse…crashed against the rocks! It was really eerie but the confident captain made his way safely past the fog and into the mouth of the San Diego harbor without a single hitch!
