Milagro Position Update

It is Sunday, May 14, 2017 (Mother’s Day) and all is well on Milagro. We did make the move today from Caleta Partida to Isla San Francisco. The last 2 nights at Partida brought SW Coromuel winds overnight with gusts to the mid 20’s with little to no wind during the daytime. This morning dawned with those winds blowing 20 kts steady with gusts to 26 though they steadily decreased with the climbing sun until down to 10 gusting to 15 when we weighed anchor a little after 0900. Our location in the anchorage was protected from much in the way of waves ever developing so we were plenty comfortable through it all. With those winds from the South and us headed generally North, we enjoyed a nice downwind run today right into the anchorage on the East side of Isla San Francisco. At 1350 MDT we were set at 24 49.806’N 111 34.001’W in 20′ over sand. It’s 79F, 61% humid and the pool is 76. There is still a South breeze of 3 to 5 kts over flat water. Wx forecast says these S winds will become Northerly on Tuesday or Wednesday so we’re going to take what advantage we can and continue our Northing tomorrow. Not sure of our destination though Puerto Los Gatos seems likely, more on that later. Hasta manana, y’all.
