6/30 - So Many Humpback Whales, So Little Time! ... A trip out to see the blue whales was not to be as seas in the western zone of the Santa Barbara Channel were a bit rough. This zone travels with the prevailing winds to the front side of Santa Cruz Island where the giant blues have been feeding recently. However, nobody was particularly sad about not pounding across to blue-land given the fact that we closely watched 16 humpback whales with at least that many more all around us spouting freely into the breeze. Our side of the Channel had medium chop in the morning and a light breeze. Both of these factors subsided as the day progressed. It was sunny and clear all day.
Our first encounter of the cetacean kind was about 8 miles south of Santa Barbara where our first cluster of 8 h...

In this coming-of-age drama set in the world of chess, Cal Fournier is competing in the Grand International Chess Open in Budapest.
