We caught a bigger fish! Maybe it was a bonito.

Bryan at the helm!

Village at the south end of Isla Cedros.

On 11/14, we around 8:15 a.m. for the long overnight to Isla Cedros. There are no very good stops along this portion of the Baja coast, so we decided to make the passage to Isla Cedros. This is our first real "offshore" passage, with us being about 50 miles from any land at the approximate mid-point of the journey.

The weather was much calmer, which meant no one was seasick, but also meant that we motored a good portion of the way. We did sail off our anchor, and then motor sailed for a few hours, but we motored all night and for the rest of our journey.

We saw some whales from a distance, and Bryan saw some closer up, his first time he had seen them.

We arrived at the anchorage on the southern end of Isla Cedros around 2:00 p.m. the next day. We were surprised to see a small village there, since none of our resources had mentioned one. We didn't go ashore however, which might have been a lost opportunity.

We went to bed early, since we had a 5:00 a.m. alarm to leave at sunrise the next day for Bahia Tortugas.
