Clawing our way to our anchorage at Abreojos. 4 - 6' confused seas with
2-3 second waves. Wind speed 20+. Celtic Song is purring away at 2500
rpms with a double reef main. Crew is amazing. Jean on watch now and
Francis is preparing to relieve her. Fortunately we ate a good bkfast
and tamales for lunch. Thank you Jean. Crew all still doing their
daily cleaning tasks. Yes, Bonnie wiped the saloon as she was bounced
up and down and back and forth. Everyone is doing well. And Celtic Song
is awesome. Love that engine. We are passing San Ignacio Laguna now.
I was there a month ago with Peggy, Barry, Sharon, Val and Cheryl. Just
on the other side. Hope to make anchor not tooooo late in the evening.
Still 25 miles as the crow flies. However we are tacking on our
rumbline because hitting these waves square on would be too brutle. This
has been the longest 150 miles ever!
That's it for now going to rest before my turn at the helm!
(The Admiral adds that the name Abreojos is interesting: it translates to “open eyes” or perhaps the injunction “open your eyes.”)
