Lumpy here, so this will be short…
Turned back last nite for Ensenada. Couple of small problems that we thought would be easy to resolve there, harder later down the track. Loose wires in the alternator wiring harness and minor oil leaks. I discovered that the gooseneck pin was working itself out, too. Good to find that when we did!
Cooked a big breakfast: hashbrowns, eggs, sausage, etc, and were “back on the road” at 11:50, dest. Turtle Bay.
Big swell and building winds expected through the nite. We’ll make up time. All aboard are well and adjusting to the conditions.
We were treated to a show by hundreds of dolphin 17 miles off of Punta La Cuesta Del Gato: jumping and spinning their way up the coast. Pass a few sunfish, too.
Top speed so far, 9 knots by Ray. (Reefed main and jib)
Best to all!
Barry and the crew of J/World.
