As Captain Ron would say " If it's gonna' happen it's gonna' happen out there".
This is our story and we're sticking to it!
We left Ensenada on 11/8/06 at noon heading to San Quintin. We sailed
all that day, through the night and into the next day before we
arrived. It was a pretty easy sail, winds were light and the seas
fairly calm. Sailing at night is one of those things high on the weird
scale. You can't see anything around you but you think you do. RT was
telling us about a hooded figure once sitting on his boom on a night
crossing. Well, not only was that hooded figure sitting on our boom
that night but I swear it was making faces at me and trying to freak me
out. On our way we had dolphins racing us and whales jumping around us.
In fact we had to change course to avoid running into what looked like
a teenage whale jumping out of the water 'cuz his girlfriend just said
yes to the prom and boy was he excited. San
Quintin was a nice anchorage. We followed Rains' guide and anchored
where they suggested, but as it grew closer to dark we found that the
breakers were breaking about 50 feet to our starboard side. Just about
then a local named Wayne came out and told us we should move just
inside the estuary for a safer anchorage, so we did and had a great
nights sleep. We stayed in San Quintin for a couple of days.
Lots of fun shots heading to and at anchor in San Quintin. Laura had fun Kayaking to shore.
