Another Catalina Adventure
Over the five days before Labor Day, I sailed on my first cruise with Fairwind Yacht Club to Avalon and Isthmus Harbor, Catalina Island. TARDIS, a Catalina 38, was ably skippered by Stephen Smith. First Mate Larry Burch and Fairwind Cruise Director Arlene de Anda rounded out the crew. Pods of porpoises said hi as we sailed. Since I hadn’t brought a computer and had no way to get online, I faced enforced relaxation. With perfect sunny weather in the 70s, it was great to spend several days swimming, hiking and snorkeling, slathered with sunblock. As I hit the trail, interspersed with eyeing dozens of fish underwater, I was reminded again of the precept “use it or lose it,” when it comes to staying physically active as we age. Yet I found no prospective dance partners while the band played at the Harbor Reef Restaurant, one consequence of being old enough to be their father, so I also got in a lot of reading.
I enjoyed making new friends, and look forward to the day that I’ll be able to skipper a Fairwind sailboat to Catalina myself, with my most able bodied of mates, Carolisa Pomerantz.
