Turning Around

Sun 29 Aug 2010 09:31

Weather Poor. No one is enjoying this and 36hrs and 190 miles to go with fair sized waves on the nose and 20+ knots of wind (forcast 10-15!). Further, forecast is deteriorating . Big system developing Monday, so no fun ahead in the near future.
Sol and I have done anchor watch off the container port of Salina cruise in 37ft of water and its reasonably sheltered. 2 on 2 off through the night and anchor has held OK, and at least we had a little rest.
Very, very hard decision, but turning back to Huatulco before first light. With a delivery crew maybe, with little ones, its time to re group before they get scared and really fed up and weather really closes in. Forecast 20K plus, so its going to be a rough ride back.
