Heading North in The Sea of Cortez!
06 November 2022 | Isla Coronados
Once again we've chosen to sail north in The Sea which is the opposite of what most cruisers do. When the Norther's start up and the outside temps drop and the water cools making swimming less attractive most everyone heads south to mainland Mexico.
Last years trip was so enjoyable we decided to try it again. Like last year we will take it one port at a time without any set time schedule since the weather dictates what you can do.
We started our journey when we left Puerto Escondido on Thursday and tucked in for the 1st Norther of the season on the south side of Isla Coronados.
Last year we made it as far north as Puerto Don Juan near the Bay of LA so this year we hope to get further up the Sea to places we've never been. But it all depends on the weather this season -- how hard and how frequent the Norther's will be.
We will harbor hop north enjoying the great little anchorages along the way and if the going gets tough it's easy enough to turn around.
So we are off!
