The norrthern Crossing.

We we made it across to mainland Mexico last night and this morning. It took 12.5hrs to sail 72 miles. The weather forecast was for no wind or weather of any kind. Wrong!!The weather and waves were pretty shitty out in the middle for about 5 hrs. We had waves going over our side and through the cockpit. Got to love an open stern. The wind was about 25 to 30 knts for about 5 hrs and then just 15 to 29 the rest of the trip. We sailed or motor sailed the whole way. The last 6 hours we sailed anywhere from 6.5 to 8.5 knts had a blast. The waves made the motion a bit hard but great sailing. During the strong stuff we only had the main up and motorsailed. Made great time but now we are dog tired. I slept about 3 hrs in the last day. We are currently anchored in Bahia San Pedro. Nice place but not much protection from the weather. That pretty much describes the anchorages on the mainland side

I will try to update our blog in reverse order. Life just goes on with one beautiful anchorage after another. It is amazing how that happens but life is still great. There were a few stand outs and I will write about them in the next couple of days.
