Cabo San Lucas to Isla Isabela

10 November 2008 | Passage
Nancy
Today is the day we said 'goodbye' to our friends and crewmates Dave & Cheryl Eakin. They head back to San Diego as we continue on our journey doublehanded from here on out. We had great sail down Baja Mexico with them and we are sure going to miss them. After we bid them a farewell, Brian and I had to continue preparing for our next leg of our trip, to sail from Cabo to Isla Isabela. The interesting part is that last year Dave and Cheryl also crewed on the Narnie O' Shea (Hunter 46) and did the sail from Cabo San Lucas to Isla Isabela and gave it two thumbs up for a destination not to miss. We completed our provisioning at the local Mercado, where we were able to find the majority of items we would get in the USA and for reasonable cost. Brian estimated that our sail to Isla Isabela (228nm) would be approximately 46 hours if we averaged 5 kts. We agreed that if we left around 9 am the next morning we could time our landfall to the island in the early hours of Thursday morning (daybreak). Our golden rule for landfalls has been to always have our approaches to new areas in the daylight so we can see any possible hazards that have not been marked on the charts and it makes it easier/safer to anchor. The weather predictions for the next two days indicated that we would have light winds (6-8 knots NW) for our first day and that the second day the winds would pick up to approx 18-20 knots NW) which is ideal for sailing south across the Sea of Cortez.
