Carlos to Puerto Penasco June 15 - 22 2005
Wednesday June 22
Actually I'm writing this Saturday (25th). We all got very busy as
we arrived back in Puerto Penasco. The last of our sailing on Tuesday
with good down wind spinnaker winds all afternoon. We set the spinnaker
at 12:30 and pulled it down as we approached the Penasco channel
entrance at 5:30
We pushed our route to the east to get a closer look at Bird Island as
we headed north. Bird Island sets 25 Nms south east of Penasco and
is a good dive destination with a friendly sea lion population. Looking
back on this last leg, our heading from Teboca was perfect for a fast
broad reach or down wind sail. Tepoca is 72Nms from Penasco and is
reachable in daylight hours. I'm sure we'll use this route many times
in the future. The exception would be when there are strong southern

Update To Intro
Red above was our last two days route.
Our friend Anita who is now
working in real estate full time in Cholla picked us up at Marina Penasco
as we arrive. Her sister and friend from North Carolina joined us for
drinks and dinner.

Lots of things to do at the
house in Cholla Bay before heading to Phoenix
on Wednesday (welcome back to reality). Bill and Walt headed to Phoenix
very early Wednesday morning. I arranged a mid morning
ride with Anita as she dropped off her
. We meet Frankie 2ish and my god it's hot in Phoenix! I want
to go back to the sea!
Well, That will be it from
this narley crew! Hope you enjoyed the the ride. Gato Loco will be
until late fall when another adventure will surely develop.
Until the next cruise stay cool… The Gato
