Milagro Position Report

It is Saturday, May 4th, 2019 (May The Fourth Be With You!) and all is well here. As advertised, this morning we made the 26nm jump to Isla San Francisco and enjoyed another good sailing day. We didn’t expect it to be and the available wind did vary but, in the end, we were able to sail a bit over 60% of the passage. Combine that with sailing 80% of yesterday’s passage and we’re doing pretty good so far. We aren’t likely to be quite so lucky with favorable wind conditions over the next several days but we’ll just have to see how it plays out. At 1208 MDT today, the anchor was set on the East side of Isla San Francisco at 24 49.698’N, 110 33.969’W in 15′ over sand. The OAT is 82F, the pool is 74F and the water vis is about 20′. There is a 4kt breeze from the SE and the sky is clear. Our friends on the SV Liahona (Bret and Marne) are buddy boating with us and we have a card game and group dinner planned for later today – after a fishing expedition to see if dinner can be pulled from the sea. We will be celebrating 2 birthdays, mine (today) and Bret’s (tomorrow). Then, tomorrow it’s off for someplace further north, maybe to the anchorage at Los Gatos. Tune in tomorrow and see. In the meantime, hasta manana, y’all.
