After a very bumpy night at La Ventana we decided not to suffer any more,
and hauled anchor at 0720 and are now underway to Los Frailes. Everyone
is settling in great. And life will be even better when we get a good
night's sleep at Frailes. Yesterday we logged in 60 NM, skipped Balandra
because of the onslaught of tourists and powerboats. Motored through the
Canal de San Lorenzo, and sailed most of the day down Canal Cerralvo on a
beam reach with 14 - 17 Knots of wind. I am happy to report all systems
are functioning. Makes my day. OK, signing off for now to raise sails.
Wind is out of the West at 15K. All is well enough!
