Ballandra, so many activities


Our timing was pretty good but not perfect as we were just beat by Stargo (whom we had met in San Juanico) into the anchorage. We brought the total to four boats, which meant we still had a good spot to anchor. Through the early afternoon three more boats pulled in and I was taught that I should have pulled…

Dolphins galore in Isla Coronado!


Looking at the forecast, the day after Thanksgiving was the only possible day to sail south so off sailing we went. From the anchorage the sea looked calm, not the 13-15 knots forecast. But once out of the protection of the bay we found it truly was blowing. We had a sporty sail south to Isla Coronado moving along at…

A visit to Vee cove and night in Isla Coronado


After breakfast it was time to move to the north side of Carmen to a fan favorite, Vee cove. Also on the agenda was fishing. The lack of wind meant more motoring but once on the east side of the island there was enough wind to try sailing. “Try” is in operative word – as we soon gave up and…

Agua Verde or bust


After five nights and four days I was feeling like a charlatan, seeing as Julia came all the way from Germany to go sailing and thus far has been stuck on a mooring ball. The weather system gone, it was our chance to bug out of Puerto Escondido. Many of my friends had planned to head Isla Monserrate but Agua…

Halloween Party in Santispac


Halloween! Berth’s was having a party but we were ready for some place new. Santispac would give us better protection from the forecast north winds (15 to 20 knots) so move on we did. Much to my dismay our lazy start gave a couple of other boats the step on us for the best anchorage in the bay. So it…

Agua Verde Experience


The Multihull/Seawind rally was quickly approaching so further north we went, stopping in another favorites spot Agua Verde. With no fresh veggies since Mazatlan (San Evaristo’s tienda was pretty bare) we were hoping that the tienda in town would replenish our supplies. So off in the kayaks we went. After a tour of the town and checking out the two…

Los Gatos, How Do I Love Thee


Shocker, but we made an early morning departure from San Evaristo. Yes, there is a theme on Strikhedonia… We had a nice trip north, and managed so sail the last few hours without the rumble of the engine. When we arrived in the anchorage we waved to our friends Nancy and Mike on Shanti, then found a good spot a…

Spring push north


The Seawind err, Multihull rally in Puerto Escondido was calling, making the push north necessary. Two new crew members would be joined me for the trip, Sabrina and Jess. Both had been traveling for the past nine months, in separate but with shockingly similar itineraries, visiting South-East Asia, Central America, and now Mexico. And both women were ending their long…
