Straight shot from Mazatlan to Guaymas. Took over a week... Man, there is so little wind in Mexico. I remember being warned about Asia but this coast is like Zen master level of patience... The plus is that the Sea feels like a lake. No swell at all. Even with a five knot breeze one can sail as there is no swell to spill the wind. I pretty much stayed in the center of the sea, tacking back and forth, always within sight of one coast or the other for most of the time. I have already become used to Mexico which is mostly tones of brown meaning rocks and sand, but when I came into Guaymas and saw a hill covered with green, I was confounded until I realized it was all cactus!
Tomorrow I will hopefully find out when I can get hauled...
