Pacific Cup Boat Gather at Richmond Yacht Club
I wasn't planning to sail to Hawaii when I left Mexico.  I was just going to stop in Los Angeles for a few days to visit friends and then head back to the Bay Area.  But I went out to lunch with some friends and one of their friends who was planning to do the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii.  She and I talked for a half an hour or so and then she turned to me and said, "Do you want to do the Pacific Cup?"  Crossing at least part of the Pacific was on my to do list for the year.  I had failed to find a ride for the Pacific Puddle Jump, so I didn't hesitate for a moment.  My answer was a resounding, "Yes!"

My ride for the race will be the C&C 40, Aeriagnie owned by Cecile Schwedes.  Rounding out the crew are Scott Lovell and Ben Hagerger of Seattle.  The start of the race is July 11, 2016.  We anticipate that it will take us a couple of weeks to get to Kaneohe Bay on Oahu, give or take a couple of days.  I will not be able to post to this blog while underway, but I will be writing and taking pictures and you can expect a post when we get to Hawaii.  Meanwhile, you can check out Aeriagnie's blog at  You can also track our progress once we are underway
