Potential ports of call

Some of you have asked where we plan to stop on the way up the coast.  Here is a list of the places we will (most likely) stop for at least an overnight stay and possibly a longer rest.  The distances to each port are approximate and in nautical miles.  Just for reference, when motoring or sailing, you can assume that we will be traveling at an average of 5 mph.  Let me know if any of you have comments or suggestions!

  1. Yay for your Bodega Bay stop! We’ll have to meet you. 🙂 I’ll be looking forward to hearing about your thoughts of Shelter Cove. I’ve been to the Lost Coast, but not that part of it. What an amazing trip you have planned. Beauty and adventure ahead!!


  2. San Francisco Bay is notably absent from your list. If you decide to stop by, please look us up. We’re in the Sceptre Sailing group on Facebook.
