2/19/2010 and 2/20/2010 San Juanico South to Cabo

Mark this day!! Dan and Craig finally caught fish this morning!!!! They realease the little buggers and we set off from San Juanico toward Magdalena Bay, about a 10 hour trip. This is the last service or anchorage for motor yachts (MY) before the 20 hour ride to Cabo San Lucas.

The waves were rather high in the morning and were retreiving rolling objects, stowing anything loose and holding on tight. Just before noon we rechecked the weather maps and decided to skip Mag Bay and continue on to Cabo in order to stay ahead of possible stormy weather.
We devided up the night shifts with Alexis and I doing the earlier (7:00 to 10:00 PM) shift, followed by Craig then Dan. Craig ended up manning the helm all night. I joined him about 3:30 AM but he stayed on for anothe hour when I took back over. Dan, sleeping in the salon, was always near at hand and up when ever we needed assistance or a course change. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be but the spectacular sun rise was more than welcomed.

As we rounded Cabo Falso and approached our wonderful Sol Mar Hotel, we were taken aback by the scads of hotels, condos and homes that covered the hills and shore. Double wow!! We arrived at the congested marina, secured a slip, docked, did our check in and quickly made use of the marina's laundry. Sweet to have shore power and water even though we all were super conservative with the water and ended up with peanty.
