Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

The View From Above

Tomorrow morning we will head out of the marina and go down to Stone Island and anchor for a night.
Then do an overnighter to San Blas / Mantenchen Bay area.
The weather doesn't seem to want to cooperate for Isla Isabella for us this time...
This is to show you where we were, are and will be...
Here is an overview of Mazatlan, with the Old Harbor at the bottom where we enjoyed the lovely anchor drills at midnight and the marinas in the estuary up towards the top of the photo ~ the area with the round island.Next, the view of the narrow, skinny and sometimes intimidating entrance (ask us about the time we surfed "Thistle" into this entrance...) to Marina El Cid, Singular and Marina Mazatlan.
We are docked by the X at Marina Mazatlan.This is a close up of the Old Harbor and Stone Island.
We were anchored at the X for two nights before we went in to the marina.
The asterisk shows where we will anchor tomorrow night.Off we go to the wild blue yonder, where internet may be slightly sporadic!

Be on the lookout for Sea Chantey, a 44 foot power boat, with Gary, KN6RM aboard. They are in La Cruz right now, but I bet you meet up with them in Barra, along with Chris and Lorri.

Will do.
Just talking about you... Don and Lenna were over - looked at some old pics, one of Jackie on "Capricorn Cat"...
Everyone says HI ! !

As much as I like aerial views, and it's interesting seeing where in the world you will be, I think I enjoy your ground level photos better.

Hi, Kids,
We are starting to pack up our "stuff" for the boat and will be off to La Cruz on the 21st. Will you be down in La Cruz area around that time?

News for Cap Cat. Gary says their anchor light was left on. They might want someone to check on it.

Last year I was eaten alive by no-see-ums in Mantanchen Bay. Goldie on the VHF had a helpful idea however....make a jumpsuit of tule and wear a bathing suit beneath. As this advice was being offered, Mike was starting the engine. Maybe that's why we were the only ones sitting in the bay. Slather on the OFF! Have fun.

I've heard Avon Skin-so-soft is the best thing for No-See-ums. That is if you can tolerate the smell. They must not like it either.
