Matir

23 September 2007 | Sea of Cortez
Keith - late May, 2007
That island in the distance is Matir. It is located in the center of the northern Sea of Cortez. Gerry says sailboats shouldn't go there because of potential water turbulence and the fact that its like 40 miles from anything. Of course, that's the point of going to Matir. Also, I didn't want to do an all night passage and it was the perfect place to stop for the night. The weather and water were so calm when I last traveled the Sea of Cortez that it was fine around Matir. And that place was incredible. Maybe the most adventurous night at sea so far. I liked the remoteness. And it was like a Jurassic Park with all the wildlife and sounds. In the picture Matir seems close, but it is still a long way away. I didn't arrive until late afternoon. When sailors back at San Carlos found out that I went to Matir, I was legendary for a day.
