5/27 - Save the Date! Fallen Angels -- 6/9 ... By Noël Coward - With their passionless husbands away playing golf, a mutual long-ago lover announces his intention to pay Julia and Jane an impromptu visit. All in a fluster, there’s clearly only one thing to do: hit the bottle! Or rather, pop open the bubbly. Each successive glass loosens their tongues, hidden jealousies surface, the claws come out, and all attempts at demure behavior go out of the window. But it’s not until the unexpected early return of their golfing husbands that the women’s evening really hits its frenzied peak. Sponsored by Geoff and Joan Rutkowski & Dan and Donna Hone. Directed by Art Manke.

The region is full of humpback whales all of which are out foraging alone with no surface feeding or signs of bait on the surface. Here’s how it went down:
Right outside the breakwater Captain Dave spotted a handful of inshore bottlenose dolphins and they were friendly to the Condor Express and to a woman SUP’er nearby. We moved up the coast at an angle so we ended up on the 50 fathom line off Gaviota when Dave made a U-turn to follow the 50 east. This put the breeze astern and left us looking down the backs of the chop for a better...
