spent a night 2 nights ago in Newport after dropping off a sick crewman.
trip so far has been nearly all under power, w winds rarely above 6-7 knots. hopefully it picks up as we near mendocino, but we're heading to crescent city for fuel to motor rest of way to SF if we need to
seas glassy calm now, a gorgeous morning, winds 2 knots!
surprisingly little boat traffic encountered, day or night, and thankfully few crab pots, which can be a real worry. season must've closed.
