BAJA SUR – Bahia Concepcion (finally)

Hey we made it…

After five years we have finally made it up to Bahia Concepcion.  We left Marina Mazatlan around Tuesday March 7, 2017 on the way SOUTH to Isla Isabela and San Blas.  The word was that the weather might change in a few days and after some discussion we agreed to put into the old harbor at Mazatlan and wait it out, we figured we would know for sure in a couple days.make a 3 or 4 day run up coast to Bahia Conception before any north winds started up again.

We left The old Harbor on Saturday March 11th around noon and arrived at Playa Santispec in Bahia Concepcion on Tuesday March 14th around 1:00 PM.  Approx 400 Nm. (John, we are looking for the bitters!)

Crossing was glass for the most part…  Mostly motoring and maybe 8 hours of sailing.

We were met with a kind hale from Ron on s/v Bat Wing to join the cruisers pot luck the night we arrived. ( and we did ).   Jess’ brother Alex arrived within a day or two and we agreed to park the truck and do some bounce about the bay and see what there is to sea!

See the sea…

Alex leaves Monday or Tuesday when we return to Playa Santispec and the “Silver Snail”…
