Marina San Carlos

30 June 2011 | San Carlos, Sonora Mexico
I made the whooping 6NM mile journey from Bahia Algodones to Marina San Carlos this morning. It's always interesting coming into a harbor that you've never been in before, it use to cause me great anxiety. I no longer feel anxious or nervous while doing most things on my boat...including coming into an unfamiliar port and into an unfamiliar slip...even when single handing. My confidence level has risen so much over the past year in so many ways. Now, please don't confuse my confident attitude with a cocky attitude...it's not. I don't think anyone should ever feel cocky about docking a 41 foot sailboat, even with a full crew aboard. As is typical here in Mexico, there were plenty of people ready to help me in, and one of them, who I later found out is a ASA certified sailing instructor said "you brought that boat in real well". Confidence level went up another notch.
Marina San Carlos (pic) is a modern, full service Marina. Along with the usual facilities, there are art galleries, restaurants, wine bars, clothing stores a 5 star hotel and of course several cantinas. It is lined with multi million dollar homes and is a world apart from Santa Rosalia..it kinda reminds me of a Monte Carlo type atmosphere, with out the high cost. Not that I've ever been to Monte Carlo.
For people following my spot messages on Facebook, tonight will be the last spot I send out until further notice, I will however continue to blog.
God Bless
