This is a blog for all of our sailing students. I blog about each course so students will have a brief record of their course on line.

Dan, Brady, Chris and Jon from Utah: dolphins, turtles mantas and sea lions plus some fish!

Seven great days of sailing with the boys from Utah. We had almost every conceivable condition you could get, first day during the memorial day regatta was a strong north westerly wind with many days of great southerly winds to follow. Dan, Brady, Chris and Jon had some wonderful Sea of Cortes moments. Two great bottle nose dolphin sailing days were recorded during our week. During those days I was able to get some great ID shots for our new dolphin catalog we are starting up for WorldsAquarium. We also spotted a few sea lions in the bay and the last day was particularly interesting with great spear fishing plus a turtle and three manta’s observed. We even stopped a commercial fisherman from trying to hook one of those manta’s up for dinner!! So seven great sailing days at the end of May! Thanks to the boys from Utah for coming down!!! I will be working on the video over the next week of so and post it when finished!!
