Gato Loco Sailing - The San Carlos Cruise.
Feb 26 Mar 6, 2005
Puerto Penasco Waterfront
The Gato Loco
crew is anxiously awaiting our first cruise of 2005. We are going
to explore the Sonoran coast between Puerto Penasco and San Carlos near Guaymas, Sonora
Tiburon is the largest island in the Sea of Cortez and is a Seri Indian reserve. The island forms a narrow channel on its east side that is not navigable by slower sailing vessels due to extreme rip tides so we will sail the west coast. We hope to anchor on the SE end at Dog Bay.
A visit to the sea side resort of Kino Bay should give us a break on long sailing legs. Going ashore in Kino requires calm seas since there is no port. Think calm seas for us! There is a island directly in front Kino with a fair weather anchorage.
The next leg south offers endless anchoring options in the cruising grounds north of San Carlos. We hope to arrive in San Carlos by the weekend.

Gato Loco will be in San Carlos until late April when we head to Baja and the Loreto Fest cruisers rally April 28th May 1st at Puerto Escondido 20 miles south of Loreto. Partners will be visiting San Carlos March/April to enjoy the San Carlos cruising grounds..
As usual we hope to send email updates during the cruise.
