Nuevo Vallarta to Mazatlan

[GPS: N 20° 45’ 49” W 105° 31’ 06”] - anchorage at Punta Mita
Michael came down on the overnight bus Thursday night, arriving Friday morning. We left at about 10am, motored over to La Cruz marina to the fuel dock to top up, and then out to Punta Mita where we anchored for the night. We figured ca. 30 hours from Punta Mita to Mazatlan – if we went on through we would arrive at night, and waiting until the next morning would give the seas and winds along our route a chance to lay down a little more. We weighed anchor at 5:25am Saturday morning and set off. The trip up to Mazatlan was an uneventful motorsail – arriving at our slip at 8:40 Sunday morning. It was great to have Michael come help me do this passage!
