Seawind Rally Magic Tale 2
Seawind Rally in North anchorage Isla Coronados
Tuesday May 8th.. Okay the gang is serious about walking to the top of Coronados. Unlike Doug and I’s last visit, we found the trail leading us to the top. The excursion started with 5 and slowly dwindled to 3. I was the 3rd to drop as I saw Kurt, Laurie & Frankie disappear in the distance.
Shortly after their return near noon we hauled anchor and joined Kat Kan Do as they sailed north from Loreto. We now have all 4 Seawinds heading for San Juanico for the beach party and wienie roast.
Winds are up from the East giving us a perfect broad reach towards Juanico.
Of course it’s a race.. Gato Loco was holding her own in front when we decided to put our spinnaker up.. Right, trying to get it up in a hurry we have a tangled mess which we finally sort out. The Spinnaker put us on a direct route to San Jaunico which should be well before everybody else. BUT… The wind died and the race was over before a winner could be named.. WELL as far as MoonDrifer was concerned they were the winner.
Lots of time to relax in the foredeck under the shade of the spinnaker.
Another good day of sailing even though we had to motor in the last mile.
Smiles on Gato Loco
San Juanico is the perfect place for a beach party. All the islands here are national parks and there’s no beach fires allowed. The shores of Juanico are Baja and you can collect firewood and beach camp plus the anchorage will hold tons of boats in little beaches. We all anchor near the north shore by the familiar pinnacles and the cruiser tree. Bill dinghed to the south shore and found fire wood. The 4 Seawind crews plus Mariah and Dee’s Dream join us for a perfect evening on the beach.
The Gato Loco dinghy and Kat Kan Do’s paddle board make for a nice dinning center. Deven shows the guys how to roast.
As you can see, the Gato Loco crew found something to add to the cruiser tree.
Regarding Kaboo’s kidnapping, we’re not sure if it was a kidnapping or an abandon ship to some resort. Still no ransom notice.
Until the next update
