Gato Loco Satellite Update 2
Good morning from Gato Loco. We’re sending this satellite update as we sail south from our overnight anchorage on Isla Salsipuedes. The photo taken at sunset last night shows a nice calm anchorage HOWEVER contrary to all the weather reports northwest winds developed and made our night on the hook a bit lumpy. We arrive early enough to hike the island and do some paddle boarding. Water is still pretty cold. Only Norman and I braved a swim.
Our past days sailing from Puerto Refugio to Bay of LA was perfect with 3 different windy segments of fun sailing. The crew was loving the excitement. Our attempt to get a full picture blog in Bay of LA was challenging. Part 1 will come out as we approach San Carlos this coming Wednesday. Our overnight in Bay of LA was also windy. Hector at Guillermo’s suggested we head out to Puerto Don Juan but we decided to stay put. Our new anchor held perfectly although it was well tested with winds gusting to 35kts.
We’ve not seen much sea life and the fishing report is uneventful. We’re catching fish at anchorage but haven’t had any hookups underway.
Tonight we will anchor at Puerto San San Francisquito and hopefully walk to a beach resort for dinner.
Tomorrow we will make the crossing backover to the mainland side of the sea probably the Los Cocinos anchorage 20 miles north of San Carlos and on in to the San Carlos Marina Real area. Actually hoping to anchor in front of the Soggy Peso if weather permits.
Everything is good on Gato Loco
Until the next update

What a trip you are having. What is the new anchor?
Carol, It’s a Rocna without the loop. Fits on the boat well. We’ve had it on board 2 years and never drug anchor.
Let us know when you make it to the Soggy, we will meet up with you all
Happy sailing ??
Sweet! Wish we were there!
