Well I was an amazing dreamy magic carpet ride down here…winds 15+ NW, both sails flying and making 6-7 knots boat speed all the way here! I actually had to tune down the boat as I was going TOO FAST (when does a sailor ever say that?) and would arrive before sun up…no bueno. So under Main alone I made 4.5 kts for the rest of trip and got here and anchor down at 1000. It’s a big open bay but calm and great holding for anchor. Past 2 days were nothing more than small boat projects, reading, weather updates, chatting up family & friends (2 bar cell signal here!!) and making great dinners!

Today I do a 128nm leg to Benitos, also…a stop along the way at Ranger Bank (Banco Ranger in espaniol) for hopefully a strike from yellow tail or dorado…need me some FISH! Will anchor in small cove by a fishing village for the night and then head to Turtle Bay on Monday…stay tuned for more interesting writing….just not much to tell as yet :)

off to the new anchorage!!!
