20 November 2016 | somewhere inthe Sea of Cortez
We met up with our sailing buddies on Prairie Oyster on Thursday in San Juanico and began our trip south with them yesterday.
The seas were still lumpy from the light norther so it was a rolly ride with little wind, but we only had to put up with it for 4 hours until we tucked into the south anchorage of Coronados. The lack of the predicted wind was a real dissapointment as we'd hoped to sail the distance but had to motor with the sails up the whole way. At least the lumpy seas were following seas.
We're making another hop south today -- this is a longer trip -- about 40 miles to Agua Verde. Doesn't look promising for any sailing again today, but at least the seas are smoother.
Sunrise swims are now a thing of the past as we will be moving most days -- and the water is now in the chilly range -- yesterday's "pool" temp was 78. But it made for a refreshing afternoon dip.
So south we go to La Paz, because winter is coming.........
