SOUTHERN CROSS

24 April 2012 | Cabo San Lucas
C. Farias
Sailing from Bahia Santa Maria to Cabo San Lucas, Jerry and I had our watch from 1AM to 7AM. And what an exciting night that was 2 nights ago. To get up and see the Southern Cross right there, so bright, in a sky that was sparkling with stars, and the ocean sparkling with luminescence from the noctiluca, gave us hope that we would reach south and warm water one day. The humidity in the air was very high and the air not as cold. The winds were light, the seas flat, we had the main and reacher sails up. No pressure, no worries. By daylight, we started peeling our layers of clothing off. By 7AM we reached Cabo San Lucas and then we got what we asked for. Heat and more heat. We decided to stop for fuel and stay for the day to clean up and get fresh fruit and veggies. Soon the dream of shorts and T-shirts became a reality as well as the reality of coming back to civilization. It seemed like it was so long ago since we had seen buildings, people, cars, noise, and all else that comes with a developed world. Mauliola and the sea became our world in this short period of time.
One day in Cabo was enough for us. After doing our shopping and getting Mauliola, and us, cleaned up, we motored to San Jose del Cabo, just about 20 miles away. As soon as we left, we caught a Spanish mackerel, of about 6lbs. This is our third catch. We have had fresh fish, or lobster, almost every day. We went for a swim while Paul and Shiralee cooked us a fabulous dinner. We opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate our arrival to warm waters and toasted to shorts and T-shirts. Now we have the surf dream, the dive dream, the Polynesia dream, and many other dreams to fulfill. The biggest of all is that nothing else breaks down. Aloha to you all and hasta luego. And mahalo nui for the comments. We love them
CRUZEIRO DO SUL
Velejando de Bahia Santa Maria a Cabo San Lucas 3 dias atras, o Jerry e eu demos o plantao de 1 as 7 da manha. Que noite maravilosa foi. Ver o Cruzeiro do Sul brilando num ceu estrelado e o mar cintilando com a biolumnescencia da noctiluca, nos deu esperanca de que um dia chegariamos ao sul e agua quente. O vento era brando, o mar calmo e nao tinhamos nenhuma peocupacao. A humidade do ar era alta e fazia menos frio. Ao nascer do dia comecamos a descartar as camadas de roupas e as 7 da manha chegamos a Cabo San Lucas e recebemos o que pedimos. Calor e mais calor. Resolvemos ficar 1 dia nesse porto agitado, para comprar verduras e frutas e reabastecer. Logo o sonho de shorts e camiseta se tornou realidade como tambem a realidade de estar de volta a civilizacao. Parece que fazia muito tempo que nao viamos edificios, carros, barulho, gente e tudo mais associado com o desenvolvimento. O mar e Mauliola havia se tornado o nosso mundo nesse pouco tempo. Um dia em Cabo foi suficiente e depois de ter feito uma limpeza geral no barco e nos, levantamos ancora em direcao a San Jose del Cabo que fica a apenas 20 milhas nauticas de Cabo. Assim que saimos pegamos um peixe, Spanish mackerel, nao sei o nome em portugues, de mais ou menos 2 1/2kg. Esse e o nosso terceiro peixe. Desde que saimos de San Diego temos comido peixe fresco ou lagosta quase todos os dias. Enquanto nadavamos num mar de agua morna, nao tanto quanto a nossa no Brasil, Paul e Shiralee preparavam um jantar delicioso para nos. Abrimos uma champagne para celebrar a nossa chegada a agua morna, e fizemos um brinde a shorts e camiseta. Agora nos temos o sonho de surf, de mergulhos e da Polynesia para se realizar. E o sonho maior de todos e de que nada mais quebre. Beijos para todos e hasta luego. E muito obrigado pelos comentarios.
