We left Las Hadas and sailed over to Santiago for a few more days of quiet nights. There we met David and Betty Ann on s\v Confidence. They left for Bahia de Navidad late morning about 11:30 am as we were arriving. They got their butt kicked trying to get to Bahia de Navidad . The waves were 6+ feet and the afternoon wind was in the 20 knot range. They turned back after four hours and re-anchored. They left at 2:00 am a couple of days later.
We sailed at 6:00 am a day or so after they did getting into Bahia de Navidad at about noon. It was a bit lumpy and the wind was on our nose with a cross swell of 6 feet or so. The wind was only about 5 knots though.
