Mazatlan to Isla Isabela

95nm downwind from Mazatlan, this "Galapagos of Mexico" gave us 3 full days of fun. Walking amongst the blue-footed boobies and frigate birds on the island, hiking to the crater lake and amazing fishing. The anchorage outside the small bay is fine in calm weather, but the all-rock bottom can be an issue if your anchor gets caught, which fortunately ours did not.

Cabo to Mazatlan

We caught a screaming norther on the passage to Mazatlan. 12+ foot waves on the beam. Sustained 35K winds for about 36 hours.

Bahia Santa Maria to Cabo

Some decent wind on the last night of the this passage. The winds and seas died down and it was clear and warm for our approach to Cabo.
