Sailing the Del Corazon

April 16, 2009 · Print This Article

In my last Del Corazon post I described how I came about finding, owning and making the initial yet extensive repairs to make the Cheoy Lee offshore 31 ketch ready to sail.

The work has continued. Almost all of the exterior teak has been varnished.  The cabin sides and top have been painted a two tone scheme with awlgrip paint.  The sink and fresh water system has been revived, and lots if interior varnish has been done.  That combined with new foam cushions in the V-birth, have increased creature comforts for weekend stays dramatically.

Mostly however, we’ve had a fantastic time sailing and just being on the boat.  We have gone sailing with lots of friends from all over.  Wether we sail to San Francisco for a burger, Angle Island for a hike,  Sausalito to  look at the boats or out the gate to test our skills, it is always an adventure.


In this Google Earth screen shot you can see all our tracks up to the day of posting.

Curious about what the bay looks like for sailing right now?

Yes there is more
