Los Muertos to La Paz04/07/2011
An early start had me out of Los Muertos and sails up by 0600. I made breakfast underway and had a decent three hours of sailing in the Ceralvo Channel before the wind died. After that it was motoring all the way to La Paz. I had hoped to get the jib into Snug Harbour Sails for a new uv strip but they were already closed. I met up with Kim and Rob from Keetya 1 and Jeff and Fiona for dinner at La Fonda and then back to the boat for an early night.

I've been in the Bay now for a while. It's time to head north. I've met friends from the last two years and taken some new sailors out. I got some surfing lessons from Corey and didn't get roughed up much. The boat's ready to go and the weather doesn't look bad. I think I'll head out tomorrow and see which way it's blowing.
Day three of the regatta promised better winds and no tsunamis. I zipped to La Cruz and picked up Corey for the last race. After a very exciting start we settled into a groove and we doing well when the main competition, Humu Humu, dropped out with an equipment failure. Humu Humu is a 68 foot Morrelli designed catamaran that will really move when the wind is up so they were having a better race than day one. That's sailboat racing and they'll be back again next year. We sailed pretty well and won again. The highlight of the day was the ride back to La Cruz to drop Corey at his boat. The wind got into the twenties and we got into the high teens while getting soaked. The awards banquet was a good time with lots of food, cervezas and laughter.
