Ta-Ta Update

The crescent bay called Paradise Cove makes a comfortable overnight anchorage, but watch out for the kelp.

After swapping cruising tales last night during the big spaghetti feed at the friendly King Harbor YC in Redondo Beach, Ta-Ta fleet members are crossing the channel to Two Harbors, Catalina today under clear blue skies — continuing the theme of ‘Reggae Pon da Ocean’. It’s supposed to be in the 90s today, making up for some foggy mornings earlier in the week. 

After skies cleared, the fleet had a lovely sail into King Harbor, where most boats rafted behind the seawall. Later, King Harbor YC hosted a great spaghetti feed for the Ta-Ta’ers.

After making the 25-mile crossing and claiming a spot in the mooring field, the fleet will gather ashore this afternoon at the main bandstand, where we’ll have a grand cruiser potluck. With any luck, we’ll air Jimmy Cliff’s classic film The Harder They Come. Despite a little fog and a few minor mishaps, the event has been a great success. Look for a full report in the October issue of Latitude 38.
