A Stern View Podcast
About This Show
Hello Friends, This is an account for my podcast that is something of a cruising guide to anchorages or sailing destinations I visit. Each podcast will correspond with an episode on my YouTube channel and a blog post with still photos and my journal entry from the log book for that part of the passage. If you have any suggestions or ideas for things you would like for me to cover on future podcasts, ie: more info, lat/long, what I had for breakfast... send me a message! The podcast medium is new to me but I feel there isn't enough Sailing Podcasts out there and I wanted to contribute!

Most Recent Episode
Little Scorpion Anchorage, Santa Cruz Island of the Channel Islands
Episode 006 : Little Scorpion Anchorage is located on the Eastern most point of Santa Cruz Island in Southern California.
In this podcast, recorded under anchor at Little Scorpion, I tell you what I know about the anchorage and my thoughts and experiences at this anchorage and talk a little about my trip to the anchorage from Pelican Bay.
Little Scorpion is divided from its namesake, Scorpion, by two large rocks that protect the anchorage from the winds and swells that primarily come out of the west or northwest.
A deep anchorage with 30' only being found near to the rocks or cliff sides. With no safe landing for dinghies you can explore the sea caves and cliffs by dinghy or kayak or make your way around to Scorpion to land and hike.
I spent the afternoon exploring the sea caves in the water snorkeling.
You can see the corresponding video episode about Little Scorpion on my YouTube Channel and read the journal entry from my log book, all of this can be found at svtriteia.com
This Podcast was recorded as part of a 9 day long sailing trip I took the last week of 2017. Exploring 6 different anchorages on Santa Cruz Island before sailing to Catalina Island to ring in the New Year.
