My SMB was going California Cruising, with the School of Sailing and Seamanship

I really like this trip.  Each year we depart the School of Sailing and Seamanship in Newport Beach for a 9 day voyage at the end of August.  Leg 1 has us stopping at Catalina, Santa Barbara Island, Santa Cruz, and then Santa Barbara Harbor.  Leg 2 takes us to San Miguel Island, Santa Cruz, Catalina, and then home to Newport Beach.

 It's just one of the essential items on the trip
