Two night passage to Huatulco

31 December 2017 | On the way to Huatulco, Mexico
George Stonecliffe
This 225 mile passage from Acapulco to Huatulco takes two full days and nights. Although we are motoring, the winds did pick-up to 15-20 knots from behind us during the first afternoon, allowing us to sail with a double-reefed jib. The bumpy sea-state always makes things difficult: food prep, walking below decks, or just sitting in the cockpit. We're always trying to figure out a better way to do things. Today is December 31st, and we anticipate some sign of celebration along the coast line tonight. We wish everyone a happy new year.
