Hasta Luego Santa Rosalia!
07 January 2022 | Santa Rosalia
We plan to leave the dock here in Santa Rosalia in a couple of hours to continue our journey north in The Sea. It’s pretty exciting for us since we haven’t done an overnight passage since 2013 when we returned from our adventure off the beaten path where we traveled to The Galapagos and the remote Gambiers of French Polynesia.
We hope to make it to Puerto Don Juan near Bahia de Los Angeles about 126 miles north of us and so far the weather looks favorable with southerly winds. We have another stop we could make, Bahia San Fransquito, that is 78 miles north of here if conditions don’t seem right to go on.
That’s the reason for late in the day departure. Any earlier and we would be approaching in the middle of the night and it’s never good to enter a port in the dark if you can avoid it, so we’ll time it for an approach near sunrise in case we decide to stop.
Passage foods are prepared and ready and Cetus is all set to go!
We will be out of cell/WiFi range probably for the next week or two when we start heading south again. So it’s back to the Ham radio and WinLink for all of our weather and communication needs. I will try to keep up remote posts to our Sailblog so anybody interested can see where we are.
It’s exciting to be cruising again!
