Riding the bus from Topo to Los Mochis. Just taking in the scenery of gringos and their obnoxious cameras.
BUDDY BOATS – Great friends!
SV Anjuli, Union 36. Very nice boat maintained by Tammy and Dan, hailing port is Portland, OR. YAY Portland! This was taken at Candelero anchorage – departing for Ensenada Grande anchorage, Espiritu Islands, SoC. They are bound for the East coast via the Panama Canal. We’ve been together since Morrow Bay.
SV Yare, home built steel ketch, 32′ Colin Archer design. Go small boats! Tor and Jessica, wonderful family with twin boys, Oden and Lars, from Seattle, WA. We first met them in Dana Point, then met up in San Diego and continued together until LaPaz. Hoping to meet up again in Puerto Vallarta and continue our journey together.
Anjuli took this picture of Konami headed for Topolobampo. It was a 20 hour motor across the Sea of Cortez. It took us nearly 3 hours from the entrance of the bay to the marina, 14 miles inland. Slow going due to shallow water and undefined buoys in the secondary channel.
Isla Espiritu, Sea of Cortez
New Year’s Eve, celebrated on the beach with good friends.
Faces in the rocks around the canyon walls, just above the shoreline.
Departing Isla Espiritu, famous rocks where sea lions give birth and you can snorkel with the playful pups. On our way to Topolobampo.
August 2014, off the Washington Coast
Small gale warning, no sports fishing boats to worry about. Rockin and Rollin downwind.
Poled drifter; yankee and main to Port. Running on the Columbia River coming back from the San Juan islands. Wind was quartering allowing us to make use the main and yankee sails together. Should’ve tried hoisting the staysail too but we were short one halyard. Gotta work on that rigging. Fantastic sailing for 3 days back to Portland.
