Cabo San Lucas

06 November 2008 | Cabo San Lucas, Baja Mexico

We left Santa Maria in a large group with steady NW 15 kt winds. We have been middle of the packers when it comes to passage time. Four Points isn't a racer (especially how much she is loaded) but we pass others along the way and end up coming into port before half the fleet. We again sailed in great wind wing & wing without needing the engine and hit speeds of 7.8 kts. The weather is warm even at night. We are heading for summer...
Cabo is crazy but we are eating well and have found the market, laundry, and internet connection. We are anchored outside the marina because the slip cost for our size boat would be $180 dollars per night. The anchorage has good holding and the breeze at night makes sleeping easy. We went to the final Baja Ha Ha beach party and everyone was having a great time. We are on our own from here on, but hope to meet other cruisers heading our way.
David & Cheryl have been the greatest friends and crewmembers. They took the tough 12 midnight to six in the morning watch every night during our passages. We all got along great even in the close quarters of a 45-foot boat. David is always quick with a funny one liner and Cheryl is a great cook. We all worked together as a team to control Four Points and kept her heading in the right direction. What a great 770 miles down the coast of Baja California with great friends. They are flying back to San Diego on Monday and we will miss them dearly. Thanks for all your help & support...
We are provisioning for our next passage across the Sea of Cortez, which we think we will set sail for on Tuesday or Wednesday (11/11/08). I have a few small things I need to fix on the boat (some times while fixing small things I find larger things to fix) before we leave but basically Four Points is ready to go. We will post again as soon as possible.

Nancy & I have been planning to go sailing for years. We are not ready to retire but decided to take this trip before we get to old. Sailing takes a lot of energy and commitment so we didnít want to wait until we canít physically handle the trip. [...]
