Heading to the "Hook"
29 April 2014 | Isla San Francisco
Bill, warm and breezy
The evening Corumeuls came up last night, which are strong winds from the southwest. So we ended up getting more and more rolley as the night wore on. This morning is still a bit rocky, but it looks to be another clear and sunny day. We weighed anchor and were on our way by 0805. We motor sailed most of the way to Isla San Francisco with stiff tail winds. The wind died as we were about an hour from our destination, making the seas much smoother, and the air much warmer. We had a fish hooked for about 5 minutes, but it had other ideas, and got away. We dropped anchor with 5 other boats, and promptly jumped in the water. We managed to catch 2 good-sized Porgie fish, which we will enjoy for dinner. The wind switched 180 degrees from what it blew all night and morning, and is now from the north, which is both cooling and calmer than the south winds. The new sun shade is really working out well, keeping us shaded, while allowing air and wind to blow through.
The evening ended with clear skies and light winds from the north. The wind came and went throughout the night, creating odd banging sounds, and a bit of motion.
