Day 1 from La Cruz de Juanacaxtle to Zihuatanejo - for their Guitarfest!

Monday 6th March 2017

On passage SE to Zihuatanejo from La Cruz. Lovely sail in Banderas Bay for a few hours before wind died - later to come back with a vengeance - NW wind built to 23 kt over yesterday evening - reefed down and still made good speed until wind abated and veered later in the night. Having to motor now against light wind from ahead. Bumpy ride in lumpy seas - 2m NW swell with SE wind waves on top... Uncomfortable!

Made 132 ml in 24 hr to this morning. Another 203 ml to go - ETA sometime before dawn Wed morning.

Midday - passing Manzanillo - busy port.
