Dauntless Bay Area Arrival Escort

M/V Dauntless has been cruising the world for the past several years up and down the USA east coast before his first Atlantic crossing from Nova Scotia to the Azores, Ireland, the Baltic region, Morocco, across the pond again to the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal, up the west coast of Mexico and finally back into the USA cruising up the California coast.

Richard (Wxx3) on Dauntless with the goal of arriving under the Golden Gate at approximately 1300 on Sunday, July 1. He will continue through the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays to Mare Island Strait and the Vallejo Muni Marina for a stay of several months.

He can be tracked here and, when he gets closer, on AIS/Marinetraffic.com.

I plan to escort Richard the final couple miles up the Mare Island Strait and thought others here might also enjoy the experience of escorting Dauntless through our home waters on his arrival. If you're interested in participating, post below with the segment you'd like to escort.

Photos will be appreciated.

I met Richard when he came in last spring. We stayed 4 days on FW in the slip, checking out the area. We had a great time. I've still got the wine he bought and didn't drink chilled for his arrival.

His crazy exceeds mine...but not by much. I think you're right...just the right amount of crazy. He's a doer!

His updates are intermittent as best on In Reach. I found him on vessel finder. AIS based. The updates there are intermittent as well. Right now his about half way between Vera Cruz and San Francisco. Give him a good welcome! I wish I could be there with you. Tell him I said hi and wish I could be with you all.

Welcome Fleet - time to head out

OK - welcome fleet.

it is about time to head out.

He is in San Pablo Bay & is just past Point Pinole in the main channel

So less that 10 miles from the turn up the Napa River & on to Vallejo.

Now is the time.

Gentlemen Start your engines ! Cast off your lines.


Here is where he is.

Thanks to Flywright for going out & welcomomg Richard & Dauntless to his new home.

Thanks to "FlyWright" for taking the time & going out to Welcome Richard & "Dauntless" to their new slip they will call home for the next few months or so.

He is all tied up at the dock & this trip is now in the history books.

All done -- all set & snug in a safe slip.

Welcome to Vallejo Richard & Dauntless.




Thanks to all the Trawler Forum Guys & Gals that were following this trip up the pacific coast of the US.

Your support is appreciated.

So all set for a while.

Thanks.

Alfa Mike
