27 June 2010 | Turtle Bay, Baja
Just a quick post to let everyone know how it's going. The first parts of our bash was the proverbial walk in the park. We motorsailed to Cabo in idyllic conditions. We stopped briefly for fuel and then were on our way around Cabo Falso and up to Bahia Santa Maria. Thanks to tropical storm Blas going around Cabo Falso did not even put spray on the deck. We had good conditions all the way to Bahia Santa Maria.
From Bahia Santa Maria to Turtle Bay was a different story. Short steep seas and lots of wind made for a very uncomfortable passage. Crew Clay "rode the bunk" the entire way due to seasickness. My heart stopped at one point when Jean was tossed across the cabin. Thankfully she was bruised but not injured.
We blew up a deck organizer and had a lot of leaks in the forepeak. As of yesterday repairs and modifications are pretty much complete.
We hope to leave Turtle Bay tonight.
I should have more to share midweek.
