Always a lot to do in El Alacran


Mostly motoring except for short periods of using the jib we made our way up to Punta el Alacran. I’d enjoyed this anchorage a few years ago and was happy to be back and even more happy to have the anchorage to ourselves. Score! Shalise headed off for some kayaking and the possibility of snorkeling (in the 55 degree water,…

A bit of recovery after all the partying


Moving on, we upped anchor as the sun rose and made our way on a up to Santa Domingo. Mostly motoring with some patches of motor-sailing until the final five miles into Bahia Concepcion when the screecher got a workout. The wind piped up as we were making our wide turn into the bay had the wind peaked at around…

The crowds of Agua Verde


Victor was excited by the fishing in the area so early I took him out in the dinghy to a spot where fisherman had been the day before. Checking on him 45 minutes later I earned that there was a strong current which pushed him back to shore, better than out to sea I suppose… He put in another fourty-five…

Big activity day in Los Gatos


Ari cooked us a big breakfast omelet to fuel us for the day and afterwards I kayaked in to shore to hike the peak guarding the bay and over another peak I had worked on a rock cairn last year. It was interesting to see how it had grown. Rather than backtrack I carefully made my way down a gully…

Soaking in all that Bahia Bonanza has to offer


Moving on up, I raised the anchor just before 6:00 Easter morning. We had an easy passage to Bahia Bonanaza, that I’m sure my crew was thankful for after our crossing, and plopped down our anchor by lunch time. Ariel took to the beautiful waters immediately with a swim to shore and walk on the beach. Victor, Shalise, and I…

Winter 2019 is a wrap!


With our overnight passage behind us it was time to tie up and enjoy dock life as we put Strikhedonia to bed for a few weeks. No need for much space on boring things like cleaning and fueling up Strikhedonia. But swimming at El Cid with Three Quarter Time? Or hiking up to El Faro (lighthouse)? Or drinking beer at…

Closing out my time in Barra


With so much music, friends, and good food the days slip by quickly. I enjoyed time with my parent’s friend Marilyn. She is almost eighty and I can’t keep up with her – dinner, music, dancing. The first night we hit rib night at Senor Froy’s followed up by music at Time out and Lucy’s. Then it was time to…

Adult Playtime in Tenacatita


Not one to mess around I was moving as the sun was rising over the hills. It was a mellow day on the water with a following long period swell. I was teased into raising the main and jib for a sprightly 7.3 knot sail. Which lasted until the end of the bay. Blerg. It was fun while it lasted.…

Solo sailing down to Perula


Up at midnight and under way with only stars and GPS to guide me. This would be a solo 100nm passage down to Perula in Chamela bay. The passage was pretty easy with some wind early on and some continuous waves slap on the bridgedeck for the first half of the passage. I was running the radar to look for…
