Mexico to Galapagos - Day 1&2

[March 3]

Total Distance: 125
24 hr Distance: 125
To go: 1600++

A good 24 hour run. We left Banderas Bay with brisk winds, and were able to glide along at our hull speed of 7 knots. As we struggled to get our sea legs under us, we wondered about the wisdom of overindulging at the breakfast buffet at the yacht club that morning. It was a fabulous farewell meal with the great friends we've made in La Cruz, but perhaps we should not have approached the meal with such reckless abandon! We settled into our usual watch schedules with an almost-full moon to guide the way. We had arrived at Banderas Bay with a full moon also - hard to believe that we were there for four weeks!
