LATV S3:36 Avalon, Catalina Island
Season 3, Episode 10 • 22m
This episode begins with a brisk, 32 mile offshore cruise from Marina Del Ray in Los Angeles to the most popular destination in southern California, the town of Avalon on Catalina Island. We return to the Catalina Island cruise throughout the show. Other segments include:
Paul and Sheryl shard demonstrate their anchoring technique as they cruise the coast of Croatia. They include some great underwater shots of setting their plow anchor on a grass bottom. After anchoring they go ashore to explore the hills that protect the anchorage and the network of stone walls that prevent the hillside from eroding.
"Underway" - cruiser photos set to the music of Eric Stone.
At the Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show, Bob checks out a new product from Forespar. McLube Sailkoat Plus is sail coating that prolongs the life of your sails by reducing friction and chafing. It prevents mildew and water absorption keeping sails cleaner and lighter. It allows sails to furl much tighter, so you can carry a larger sail if you have in-mast or in-boom furling.
Sailor's Quest - After sailing down the Strait of Juan De Fuca to the Pacific coast, the crew talks with members of the Makah tribe about their philosophy of sustainable living and cultural heritage that they apply to whale hunting. They only take from the sea what they need.
"Attitudes" - Bob reminisces about past voyages as he plans for new adventures.
