Feb 7, 2014 - Entertainment At Sea

Overnight Sapphire Princess continued on a north-westerly course and this morning we sailed by Isla Cedros. We enjoyed our two days at sea. The entertainment on the ship is outstanding. They have nightly shows with great comedians and much more to entertain. Jerry entered the Pop Star Contest singing "My Way" and came in second place. He performed live for the ships audience and was in the top six out of over thirty contestants. He was very happy to come in second place. We had a wonderful time, tonight we had to pack our bags and get...

Jan 28, 2007 - The Crossing - La Paz to Mazatlan

Jan. 24, 2007, Wednesday Tuesday night, it looks like it's a go to leave for Mazatlán tomorrow morning. We set the alarm clock for 0600 hours and we're on our way by 0630. Our first destination is Bahia de los Muertos aka Bahia de los Sueños. The story, as I've heard it, goes like this... Centuries ago, there was a boatload of Chinese immigrants that arrived in La Paz. They were all sick with some kind of unknown disease. They were sent to Bahia de los Muertos where all of them died, hence the name Bahia de los Muertos. The local folks...

Dec 7, 2006 - From San Quitin to Cedros

We left San Quintin at O'dark thirty to get to Turtle Bay. The day started off beautifully. Little did we know what was ahead for us and our little ship. We motored all day, as the wind was on our nose. So far I'm not sure why we have sails. The day was drawing to an end and we would soon be starting our night watches. Soon the seas and wind started picking up and then all hell broke out. We tried to get to Isla Benito to anchor in the protection of the Island but just as we got there the moon set and we would not attempt to find the...

Feb 25, 2006 - Isla Cedros to Bahia Tortugas

The weather was fine so in the middle of heading to Colnett, after fixing a small sea water leak from an old LP locker vent, we decided to head straight to Isla Cedros (Cedros Island) about 240 miles to the south. So we headed 15 miles off shore to clear Sacramento Reef and other hazards and settled in for the night. Julie did her first night watch and I was a little concerned for she kept falling asleep on her day watch!! But she did OK and best of all she has not been sea sick (knock wood) the whole way. I am very proud of my first mate....

Nov 14, 2004 - Bahia San Quintin to 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...
