Turtle Bay
Fizemos o transito de Ensenada ate Turtle Bay sem incidentes. As primeiras 24 horas teve muito vento com mar alto, ondas de 3 metros e vento de 20 a 30knt. Durante a noite fez muito frio, tanto que Paul decidiu que deveriamos passar a sengunda noite ancorado numa bahia a meio caminho. Foi uma boa ideia pois ao checar o barco, descobrimos que um dos lemes estava totalmente danificado. Um novo precisa ser feito nos EUA e enviado para nos, o que vai levar de 3 a 4 semanas. Parece entao que eu vou ter boa oportunidade de melhorar o meu espanhol.
Dia seguinte prosseguimos ate Turtle Bay, um trajeto curto e sem vento, que fizemos em 8 horas.
A caminho colocamos a linha de pesca na agua e pegamos um peixe, parece com a pescada amarela, de 5kg. O nosso cardapio de almoco e jantar melhorou bastante.
Hoje vamos pra terra, ver a pequena vila. Precisamos estirar as nossas pernas.
Tchau e beijos pra todos.

We left Ensenada with a lot of wind, 20 to 30knts, and 10 to 12 feet seas. The night was cold, and the bang, boom, slam, kaboom sound of the water hitting the hulls was a test to our ears. It was nice to come to a quiet anchorage, San Benitos, for the night before proceeding to Turtle Bay next morning.
In the way here, we caught a nice yellow tail, about 12lbs. And we caught it at the right time, lunch time.
We also caught a serious problem with our port rudder. It is completely damaged due to faulty manufacturing. It will take weeks to get one made and shipped to us. We will be in Mexico for longer than we had planned. But such is the life in a boat. Every plan is to be changed without notice.
We are going to shore soon, to the small village, to check it out and get some fresh fruit.
Hasta luego.
