Whaling-in the New Year

The Searavens celebrated New Year’s Day by chartering S/V Mungo Jerrie, a Catalina 320, for a whale watching mission off Santa Cruz.  No whales were spotted, but we enjoyed the sun, nice breeze, calm seas, and 50+ nm visibility.

Bruddah Nappy from the SC Outrigger Canoe Club was out with another OC-6 on a training paddle.  This boat is named, I’m sure, for Nappy Napoleon, the Hawaiian paddling legend.  You can see his club’s boats here.
