This was not the best way to start a voyage. We were tired, but we thought that we would be able to catch up on our sleep taking turns on watch and it couldn't be worse than Amapala. The waves that had been rolling us around the anchorage were bigger outside the bay and there was a mean cross swell as well. Throw in a 20 to 30 knot breeze on our port bow and we had ourselves a party. Unfortunately, Hal, our unfaithful auto-pilot didn't want to come to our little party and every time we turned him on, he would do something devious like turn us around, heading back the way we came.
Hal seems to have lost his mind....
I baked a lot on this passage; a meatloaf, a struesel banana cake and 2 loaves of bread. The hardest part is dealing with a wildly swinging hot stove while trying to hang on to anything else. Sometimes I cook on these passages and sometimes I don't. Dois is such a good sport and eats most everything I dish out.
These photos are a few left in my camera from Corinto. Enjoy
