We are putting some miles under these hulls!
We left Magdalena Bay at midnight I think??
And bypassed Santa Maria Bay.
Once we rounded Cabo San Lazaro, we fell off and headed towards San Juanico.
We had a nice motorsail doing mid 9's and even got over 10 knots off and on.
Yipee ~ fast is good.
The wind started really picking up when we got close to the anchorage and we had a good 25 knots when anchoring.
Jim got to experience the "trying to keep the bows into the wind in 25 knots while anchoring thing" that I have experienced so many times...
But it was flat!
A nice hora feliz, a nice dinner and nice sleep until 1:30 am, when it was time to do it all over again.
Out of San Juanico at a little after 2 am, with "Capricorn Cat" on a leash behind us.
And now the lovely A Ticket...
Smooth, calm seas.
So we continued past Abreojos, past Hipolito, past Asuncion and made an attempt at going into Bahia San Roque.
That wasn't going to work.
25 knots on the beam and 25 pangas at anchor.
Head back to Asuncion.
Turtle Bay is only 40 more miles!
And it's beautiful out!
So "Capricorn Cat" suggested pressing on.
Dinner underway with freshly made focaccia bread and a pasta casserole.
A nice easy motorsail Northward and we were inside the Bay by 1 am.
Anchored by 1:30 am.
So an awesome 23 1/2 hour run from San Juanico to Turtle!
Just fueled up, checking weather, talking with "Allegria", "Bristol Blue" and "Capricorn Cat" making our next passage plans.
One more big hurdle to go ~ the jump off from the North end of Cedros Island.
