So, after continually checking the weather we decided we would sail from Bahia de Navidad to Tenacatita. There were thunder storms heading for Bahia de Navidad and we wanted to avoid them and get going.We would spend two days there in Tenacatita, one to clean the bottom and one to play and then sail to the islands at Chamela (Perula Bay) and spend two days there. We have never anchored at the islands. Then off to Ipala (never anchored there before) for a day or two before rounding Cape Cabo Corientes and going to Yelapa for a couple of days. All plans written in sand at low tide :)
Bruse & Pascale on s\v Calou (a Jeanneau 47') suggested we try to go to Ipala, spend the night and then go around Cape Cabo Corientes in the morning as they do. With our broken autopilot we would not need to steer all night.
