Escape From Cabo to Bahia Los Frailes

15 November 2013 | Bahia Los Frailes

Mexico 11/12
We left Cabo before 0700, dodging all the fishing boats that were crowding the fuel dock. We motor sailed in a beautiful and calm morning, spotting lots of wildlife along the way. We saw jumping
Manta rays, jumping tuna and even some marlin showing their aerial stuff. John spotted a couple of huge manta rays and pointed them out to me. As we made our way further east, the ocean began to show signs of waves from the Sea of Cortez, coming straight at us. As the day wore on, the waves became steeper and were joined with winds of 10-20 knots on our nose. This slowed our progress to under 4 knots at times, delaying our arrival at Bahia Los Frailes until about 4:30. Although we had fishing lines out the entire time, we didn't catch anything except a dirty rag that blew overboard.
When we arrived, we quickly dropped anchor and jumped in the 81 degree water. John swam to shore, while I used the stand up paddle board. I saw a spotted eagle ray as it swam underneath me. The evening at anchor was one of the best so far, with a half-moon, cool breeze, and gentle rocking motion. It seemed quiet with just john and I on board, after sharing the boat with Milo and Kyle for so many days. We miss their company.
