Cruising Mexico - Heading South
08 February 2011 | Bahia de Chamela
We are on the move again. Left Punta Mita at 1.00am yesterday and motor sailed 100 odd nm to the beginning of the Mexico Gold Coast.
We arrived at 4.00pm and apart from being pretty tired we were good .
Red Sky didn`t miss a beat. The seas were pretty sloppy early in the passage as we rounded Cabo Corrientes but they settled down as we continued south and for the last 6 hours they were almost flat calm.
Chamela (see photo gallery) is another Mexican fishing village that has a number of as we have come to know and love them as "Plapa Restaurants" . More delicious fresh cheap seafood and Cervazas. Yippee !
We will continue to cruise south over the next 2-3 weeks covering about 300nm to our next major port , the port of Zihuatanejo . Looking forward to visiting the many anchorages and beaches between here and there.
We are missing our 3rd crew member Matteo , it took a couple of days after he left before I stopped expecting to see him wander out of his cabin and come join us on deck . He has been in touch. He made it home safe and without any airline dramas and is enjoying his friends once again. He did say he had forgotten how little his money buys at home and that he missed us also.
The weather continues to be awesome - Lovin Mexico
