The Zongo Cup is a race from Morro Bay to Avila Beach. This means we will be sailing from one dark black square to the other dark square on the map above. The route takes us around Point Buchon.
We didn't think that the navigation would be that tricky, but this week we've had thick fog until about 5pm. We didn't think we would lose sight of land during the whole trek down to Avila and back, but now we are thinking again. The marine layer limits visualization significantly. We know we will be atleast a mile off-shore, so we'll have to use our iphone apps for navigation. The Captain bought a car-charger/cigarette lighter iphone charger today--great thinking--so that we can have it online for the whole trip.
