Leaving on a Jet Stream
11 April 2013
Well, not exactly the jet stream,but couldn't resist the reference to Peter, Paul and Mary (and John Denver). March 28, 2012, leaving Mexico for the Marquesas, about a 2700 mile sail that should take about 3 weeks. We have a nice breeze to get us out of Banderas Bay and beyond, and a full moon. We've been upgrading PACIFIC HWY and working towards this departure since we bought the boat last April. We're so happy we had the opportunity to spend the summer in Morro Bay and the winter in Mexico. Mexico has it all - warm weather, friendly people, good food, good cruising, and a large cruising community. There may be more people from Vancouver spending the winter here than there are people in Vancouver. A friend suggested a T-shirt saying, "I spent the winter in Mexico and learned to speak Canadian."
