We arrived in Sausalito at 3:30am Tuesday after a fast 44-hour passage. (We averaged more than six knots!)

Our old Westerbeke diesel did great, running for a total of 39 hours during the passage with no complaints.

Our journey was uneventful until we reached the Golden Gate. Lights and vessels bombarded our senses. A particular spot of darkness confused us, too, as the Mile Rock light was out. One inbound ship and two outbound made the Gate feel very narrow. But we successfully navigated the traffic with no close calls.

After a quiet trip up the Sausalito channel, we tied up Aegea in her new slip at Clipper Yacht Harbor.

Thanks again to Braden Kowitz who was fantastic as both crew and company.
