Winds of Winter

February is a time of weather, in Southern California. It rains, yes, but never for more than a day or so. When it stops, the winds shift 180 degrees and blow, in what is known as a clearing Northwesterly. Exhilarating blue skies, fresh sea air and salt spume excite the senses. Here in this picture, "Amethyst" is close hauled and beating to weather, on such a day. Dolphins were escorting us, as we sailed along. The fore deck awash with salt water, "Amethyst" the 46' wooden ketch is in her groove. Visit us on your next trip to Marina del Rey!
