Our Catalina Adventure Cruise, aboard our Lagoon 40 "Mai Tai," enjoyed some recent upgrades...like new sails. Dale spent hours fine tuning jib cars, main sheet traveler, main sheet tension, outhaul, draft position and more. Our crew experimented with many hands on trimming sessions. Max boat speed was 8 - 10 knots.

Mai Tai on it's mooring in Two Harbors. A nice spot close to the dinghy dock.
The new face lift for Two Harbors is the outdoor, boardwalk restaurant, and sunning cabanas on the beach. After dinner we walked across the island to Catalina Harbor. A few of us saw a small Catalina fox scampering around the beach.
Early morning in Two Harbors always brings a spectacular painted sky.
Hmmm...I smell sausage and eggs.
Mai Tai offers lots of room and bright airy vistas.
After sailing down the coast towards Avalon, we did some jibing and MOB drills.
Lunch menu provided pulled pork / pulled chicken and coleslaw sandwiches, guacamole, salsa, chips, carrots and sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.
We were greeted in Avalon by the local parasail outfit, flying his customers right over the top
of our mast. You could hear the screams as they dipped low over us.
Had to do a double take on this beauty.
The bimini is a thatched roof umbrella. Great sense of humor for such a gorgeous boat.
Time to think about getting back to the boat.
We walked and walked 'till our walkers were sore.
Public showers that were rumored to be shut down...were open.
So nice to get cleaned up in a real shower.
Leg 3 was forecast to be rainy with no wind.
We did motor mid way, but great winds picked up about 5 miles out of Long Beach
Lobster tail and salmon on the grill at Parker's Lighthouse Restaurant.
A great place to celebrate a great adventure.
Our crew was awesome.
Thanks for the memories.
Until we meet again.
