Waiting it out

There is one thing that we are developing while we wait for engine parts ….. PATIENCE!   Thank you Connie and Stefa for your timely words of encouragement.  We are getting somewhat immersed in the local cultural experience after being here for over 3 weeks.  Only 140 years ago human sacrifice was still practiced, and […]

Boobies Everywhere!

(click on any pic to enlarge) We slipped out of Mazatlan on Tuesday Jan 24, 2017, at 7:45am.  Somewhat reluctantly, I would add!   We had enjoyed such a fantastic almost two week stay in this well run luxury resort!  We had actually checked out the day prior, and the owner of El Cid Marina, […]

Mazatlan Luxury!

For a migrant “yachtista”, Mazatlan, approached the right way, is absolute heaven! Mayaluga very rarely ever goes into a marina. Mazatlan is one of those exceptions brought about mostly because of horror stories we had heard about theft from sailboats at anchor. We bit the bullet and paid for 7 nights at the security-gated El […]

Los Muertos (Place of the Dead)

In my opinion, Bahia Los Meurtos is probably as good an anchorage as one could find just about anywhere in the world! We spent almost a week here. The beach blazingly white in the sunshine, postcard perfect! It is good to recharge ourselves and discover what this lifestyle is actually all about. No rush; no […]

Cabo St Lucas northwards

What a huge relief to leave Cabo San Lucas!  It was a horribly exposed and rolly anchorage. We sat out the 30 plus knots barreling down from the north and then made a break for it as soon as we could. We limped into San Jose (Puerto Los Cabos), about 20 miles NE of Cabo […]

Baja-Ha-Ha and more ha-ha’s

Anchored here in spectacular Bahia Los Frailes this Friday, November 18, 2016, I contemplate the hectic last two and a half weeks.  The many social activities associated with this tightly scheduled rally kept us busy and pretty much sleep deprived.  The start of the rally was a sight to behold!  A parade-past of all 183 […]

San Diego

On Wed October 12 we left Dana Point at 0400hrs (4:00am) hoping to make it as far as Mission Bay just north of San Diego before sunset.  The weather was perfect, 20 knots from the north propelling us southward at 6 knots with all white sails flying full.  Our buddy-boat, Nightide was within visual all […]

Out on parole?

Whilst living ashore, 7 hours of sleep is quite sufficient for me.  After a particularly busy day, or maybe after a day outdoors with lots of fresh-air, 8 hours is preferable, sometimes even a bit more given exceptional circumstances.  It has been quite concerning however to note that this cruising lifestyle has changed sleep patterns […]

The Quest for Warmer Weather!

(Please click pics for full-size images) Decision made!  Tomorrow Mayaluga is going south, Nightide is going to Santa Barbara.  We chatted about the strategy with Ian and Helen on VHF channel 79 and also on the HF SSB radio on 4.146Mhz.  In broad terms we will meet up on Tuesday  11th at Dana Point. It […]
