Baja 2006 April 29th - May 19th

May 5th

Arrived in San Juanico 6ish yesterday after motorsailing all day with the wind on our nose. Anchored in 10' of water in south bay. 4 other boats scattered over the large bay. Good hiking and snorkeling. Heard on the radio that one of the boats was spearfishing for dinner off one of the pinnacle rocks in the middle of the bay. Bill caught 2 fish today and kept the yellowtail for his b-day dinner.

B-day dinner

Excellent dinner with singing of course. Decided it would be bad luck to listen to the Suns game (they lost the last time we listened). Finally turned it on in time to hear the overtime action and win.. Kobe Sucks.. Go Suns...

Today we snorkeled the Pinnacles at the south entrance. Nice snorkel spot, BUT today it was very buggie. We've spent the morning working to get them off the boat.

KIYOMI on the rocks. Don't know any details.. Will ask at Loreto Fest.

11AM, a mile north of Isla Coronados just north of Loreto. Wind still light and on our nose, if these winds hold it will be a nice spinnaker sail back to up the coast in the coming weeks. Should make Puerto Escondido 3ish and in time for Loreto Fest activities tonight.

Until the next update… The Gato Loco Crew
