The first 2011 trip was a big success! The club sailed out of Long Beach on a chartered Catalina 280 and toured the local coastline. Although the day started off in a thick fog, testing the navigation skills of the crew, it eventually cleared up into a gorgeous afternoon. We saw beaches, piers, islands, oil platforms, and the local sea-life! At the end of the day, a tired crew enjoyed a beautiful dinner by the water, and then returned home for much enjoyed showering and rest. Check out some pictures below (also at this link), and look forward to similar events in the future.
