After our blog yesterday the wind picked up a bit so we got the cruising chute out and were soon sailing at 4 knots, which increased to 6 knots as the day progressed. We were visited by a group of dolphins - possibly bottle nosed but they didn't stay to play. At 1650 the wind began to die and we had about 12 miles to go and just over 2 hours of daylight, so we put the engine on and motored the last bit, arriving just as it was getting dark. We anchored well into the bay between 'Saga' and 'Bonnie' had a cold beer and went to bed.

This morning we have checked the hull for growth, with Thomas from 'Saga' going down with his scuba gear to check the bottom. We now need an agent to start the process of clearing in to the Galápagos.

The bay here is quite small and crowded with what appear to be tripper ships, and we are rolling in the Pacific swell.
