Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

Sailing in the Santa Barbara Channel

Sailing in the Santa Barbara Channel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9OT8mOjEa0 A few weekends back, we went sailing from Channel Island Harbor with a good friend. He is a member of the sailing club there and offered to take us out. Not only was it fun, but it was also an educational experience. Some of us got a little queasy, but we have learned to not go below and to not upload images to instagram  once at sea. A most certain way to turn green.

My friend has promised to take me out to the islands for some peakbagging excursions when he is ready.
