Niña visits San Rafael
Now, I'm not really sure if this vessel is called the "Niña" or the "Ni a" as it appears in the The Marin IJ article. I tend to favor "Niña", and suspect the IJ just used some mutant font that doesn't respresent the "ñ" correctly...

Anyway, I looped around on the way home to check it out, as it isn't every week that a 93 foot world-travelling ship visits the local harbor. Pretty dang impressive, actually. Mostly that any human would put themselves willingly aboard something that small and sail off on the open sea to an unknown destination.

Since it was just up in Sacramento, and the Sac Bee referred to it as the "Niña"in their story, I would say that it's "Niña" for sure.
