La Paz to Ixtapa -- Leg III -- Into Ixtapa

Leg III -- Tentacatita to Ixtapa

225nm to Ixtapa. The weather remained calm -- sailing winds picked up with the sunrise, but would quickly taper off to glass waters and the need to motor. The temperature was perfect and idyllic is the only way to describe the entire experience. On our our way down the Gold Coast, we had our first a major fishing run. Hooked 3 dorados (landed none -- which is another story), and hooked two sailfish, landing a single amazing specimen.

Ixtapa itself is gorgeous. Breathtaking beauty, tropical setting, beaches with the softest sand in the world, and great nearby anchorages. Snorkeling with no wet suit and never getting even the slightest bit cold was greatly appreciated by the entire family.
