Anchored at Isla San Martin

11 November 2010 | San Diego, CA
After a 21 hour passage from Ensenada, we arrived and anchored at Caletta Hassler on the island of San Martin. We had fairly good winds overnight beginning with about 10 knots from the NW. Just after sunset , the wind increased to 18 knots and Thor took off. We sailed mostly wing and wing with the jib poled out on the port side. Later in the morning, the wind became very light and switched to the southeast so we motored the last 12 miles to the island.

Isla San Martin is a remnant of an extinct volcano, about 3 miles offshore of the mainland. It is circular in shape, has a crater in the middle with twin peaks on the craters border. The whole island is composed of lava and has very little vegetation. There are no permanent residents, here, but there are lobster fisherman who live in temporary camps when they are working. The camps are nothing but old shacks put together with corrugated steel and driftwood, but they give them shelter. The lobsters that they catch are kept in holding pens in the anchorage until they are sent to market.
