After squashing what we thought were all of our obstacles to getting out to the islands near La Paz for a more relaxing "vacation" part of our trip, we set sail on a cloudy day. It was a nice sail slightly upwind, so we planned to sail out on one tack and motor back into… Continue reading Last Island Trip and Renaming our Boat
As it turns out, we had to take care of a few more pressing items before getting in the water. Sailboats are funny like that, as soon as you think you have repaired everything, something else breaks.
