This was the biggest and longest TMCA cruise that we have ever led down coast. We had 29 boats signed up for this cruise and we had to make accommodations for all. Josh and I took a driving trip several months before to scope out some docking/restaurant locations. In Pt. O'Conner, we were fortunate to find The Sanctuary at Costa Grande.
Some boats were single handed, some had boat problems during the trip and had to turn back or wait until our return trip, and some went offshore. The first part of the trip the weather was not nice but we kept moving on hoping that the weather would get better and it did!
