We sailed from La Playita Marina Panama City on Saturday to Contadura Island at the northern end of the Las Perlas group of islands. Great sail and anchorage. very beautiful and much less crowded than San Blas.
Monday we sailed and motored to an anchorage between Isla Chapera and Moga Mogo, many of the WARC fleet had been there but had moved on so there was Garlix, and Allegro plus a couple of other cruisers. That changed late in the day when Pentagram, Makena and Aretha arrived en mass preceded by Juno who had lsft for another anchorage but decided this was far better. Stella and Dain swam ashore to the beach while I cleaned the waterline, which Dain helped to finish off later. Need to have a very clean hull for Galapagos otherwise they charge to put a diver down to clean.
The sun is out but hopefully a breeze will develop to take some of the heat out of the day.
