|Enjoying some "Island Time"|
It was a bit windy the following morning, but Trisha and I decided to round the northern end of Isla Partida and head for an anchorage on the west side. When we were a couple of miles out, we got on the radio and provided the other boats with a weather report. The wind was twelve knots from the north with three to five foot seas. Based on our report, the others decided to spend another night at anchor in Bonanza. We continued north. The next three hours of motor-sailing were progressively more and more grueling. The wind continued to build and, at times, the waves were an easily eight feet. We made it safely, but it was in no way fun. The only good part of the day was when could finally make the hard left turn and start racing down the west side of the island to shelter.
