Arrival at Turtle Bay, Mexico

07 August 2008 | 27 41'N:114 54'W,
We arrived at a perfect time Aug. 7/08 at 0700h in Turtle Bay to a beautiful sunrise. What a nice rest after four days of engine pounding against the wind and currents!

TB is a small tranquil local port around 350 miles south of San Diego. It's sole purpose in life is to provide a first fuel stop, not to mention a source of other equally important staples such as cerveza, rum, tequila. for all the sport fishermen heading down to Cabo San Lucas, a large sport fishing center at the very tip of Baja.

We are here to pick up Santi and his friend who are flying in on a private Beechcraft Baron owned by a friend of Dale's.....they should be here by noon. (We could all use friends like that!) Then it's a 2 day slog aginst the wind and current - as it was since leaving La Cruz - all the way to San Diego.

Joanne, who was a fabulous crew member, (and you can call her "sailor" now), AND established a personal record for the number of consecutive days at sea- 18 !!! and 2,300 miles !!!, will be arriving in Montreal on Monday.....I might hang out another few more days in San Diego.
