Anchored in Puerto Refugio
Monday May 25th
The Gato crew appreciated a comfortable cool night to decompress from the stress preparing, provisioning and launching the cruise. THe leg to Puerto Refugio is 57 miles an easier day so it was a no alarm morning and we made way at 7:15 with north winds at 10. The Lobos area is know for good fishing and with lines out we caught a nice size Yellowtail, one of the best eating fish in the northern Sea. Life is good.
Wind was forecasted to build and by 10 we had motors off with 18kt winds on our starboard steer again and better wave action so auto could manage Gato cruising at 8kts. As forecasted winds faded 2ish forcing us motor sail the last hours to Refugio. Anchor down 4:30 with 2 boats in the anchorage. Before long one boat hulled anchor and headed north presumably for Penasco. Murril, CHris and I went for a hike to capture a picture of our anchorage. During happy hour we discovered the propane hose for cooking was broken. No hot food tonight. Yellowtail sashami tonight and salad tonight. Hopefully we can find repairs in Bay of LA. Hopedfully alls good on Gato Loco 🙂
Until the next update
We’re currently setting at Guillermo’s in Bay of LA having Margs. Soon to see if we can find parts for the propane, Ice and gas before we depart south to near by anchorage Don Juan.
