Sting Reay will Sail with Gato Loco to San Carlos

Great News… Leg 1 will have Craig Reay and his crew John Heizer sailing his Corsair F28 trimaran “Sting Reay” to San Carlos with Gato Loco. She is fast and will keep the Gato Loco crew focused to keep up. It will be fun to watch..
Craig wanted to see a chart with the crossings and potential anchorages for Leg 1. The chart below highlights interesting anchorages; Isla San Luis, Willard Bay, Double headed Cove, Puerto Refugio, Bay of LA, Tiburon and anchorages north of San Carlos. The leg to Isla San Luis is a long full 89nm day of sailing then easy legs until the leg heading to the final anchorage north of San Carlos. At the moment, the plan will be to use Marina Real for the hand off to the leg 2 crew. It looks like I will be towing Sting Reay’s trailer to Marina Real so she can be hauled and stay in the area until sailing back to Penasco with Gato Loco in June. Craig is looking for a crew for that leg…

Until the next Update.. The Gato Loco Crew
You guys are my inspiration. I plan on ending my law enforcement career in 2.3 years (30 total) and do exactly what you folks have done. I hope to name our Cat “Endless Summer” and God willing we will sail with Gato Loco someday. Vaya Con Dios.
