Busy Bank Holiday

Was out this Sunday for one of the busiest days of the year.The labor day 3 day weekend is the "end of summer" for a lot of Californians. Boats are put away ready for the cold weather ahead(Mid 70's )
So my buddie was taking a charter out to La Jolla for snorkelling and so I decided to tag along.
Leaving the channel and into the open ocean gave me the chance to get some action shots. Just offshore we came across some kite surfers.
Now just who has right of way
At La jolla the water was sheltered and ideal for the kayakers to raft up and go snorkeling. They seemed to be attracted to our RIBS A lot more stable than what they were in!
Two rare sightings! One of a sea turle that just submerged as I swung around.Honest it's there really and then a Baywatch girl being towed around.Anyone need rescuing
On a little more serious note , on the way back, spotted a PWC user being a real idiot Glad to see the boys in blue ,quickly put an end to that Breathalised on the spot and carted away.Carries same severity as driving a car while drunk over here.
cheers dal

You should treat him like a sailing boat (as he is wind powered) so he is the stand on "vessel"

You are absolutely right but try and find a monkey on a string that understands port and starboard.

Great pics Limey!

Looks like you had a much more pleasant weekend in sunny CA. I was out this weekend in New England in my 25' sailboat, in the remnants of of Hurricane Ernesto. Left Newport, RI Sunday AM in 25-35 knots and 8'-10' seas, reefed main, genoa furled to about 105%. Pretty much as wild conditions as I've sailed in the past 40 years that I can recall. Wind was out of the E, where we had to go. Saw all of 6 boats all day in 50 miles, all were bigger, most were twice our size! Yesterday we covered 60 miles in 10-20 knots, close reaching the whole way, sunny & beautiful all day. MANY boats travelling yesterday for the long weekend... sissy, fair weather sailors!

I kept thinking it would have been a fun trip in the Searider! Though 2 people were swept off their hard boat near my home on Satuday and perished unfortunately.

Dal;

Is that Pt. Loma in the background (the one with the cave)? Or something else?

jky,
not Point Loma i'm afraid.
Few miles further up the coast at La jolla cove.
Several caves there :including one that has stairs leading up to a local shell shop on top of the cliff.
Great place to snorkel ,as it is a sanctuary and had abundant marine life.
Lots of Garibaldi,sealions,lobster,etc.
Jewels thanks for photos.By the way the Navy gunboats were out looking for you again and said you hadnt paid the restaurant bill
Hurry up and get that Ribcraft Mike will not be happy now until he gets the bigger engine
cheers dal
