Heres one for the solo sailing fans!

After a few weeks away from the boat, I return to Juneau and start solo sailing south. Mellow but steady winds keep me cruising along happily as I make stops in Taku Harbor and Tracy Arm Cove. In Tracy Arm, I check out the immense icebergs floating around and enjoy the continued sunny weather.

It had been a long time since I did a solo sailing trip beyond 2-3 days. As soon as I left the harbor in Juneau and got the sails up, a great sense of calm came over me. I was thrilled and excited to test my abilities, and have the opportunity to quietly reflect on my life, which at that point was going through some major changes.

This, and the next couple episodes will feature solo sailing before I pick up new crew in Petersburg!
