Night Passge to Acapulco

26 December 2017 | On the way to Acapulco, Mexico
George Stonecliffe
We have a total of 110 miles from Zihuatanejo to Acapulco. So we figured on a night passage. Light winds had us motoring, which was good for charging the batteries. Today we saw a large humpback whale, and later a dozen Pacific spotted dolphins playing in our bow wake. We also saw blue-footed boobies, brown-footed boobies, and red-billed tropic birds (they have a long white tail like a pennant). Tonight the winds are still light, 7-8 knots apparent. Although our speed is barely over 3 knots, we have a current with us, so our speed over the ground is 3.7. We have 55 miles left to go, and at this rate, we should be their sometime after breakfast. We intend to stay at the Yacht Club if possible for a few days before moving south. The half moon is bright, so that the stars are not as visible. But we still can identify some of the brighter constellations. There are a few puffy clouds obscuring our view now and then. But overall it is a pleasant evening with a temperature of 82F.
