Bay Area sailor Jackie Philpott has been making the most of the fall weather. After cruising in this year’s Delta Doo Dah aboard her Cal 2-27 Dura Mater, Jackie embarked upon a solo sail from Richmond Yacht Club to the Channel Islands. Her plan was to make a number of stops along the way, and so far this has proved to be a good decision.
Upon stopping in Santa Barbara, Jackie met Mike Pyzel, who wrote Latitude 38‘s August feature about sailing in the Channel Islands. (Mike also took the September magazine cover photo). Who better to learn from regarding the ins and outs of the islands than the sailor who covered the topic across half a dozen informative pages? A serendipitous moment, perhaps?
