we were minding our p's and q's, as we raised the mizzen in sd, it was already ripped--- was not ripped when inspected at dock....strange..number one...
we sailed on th e prefrontal winds as far as salsipuedes, then , as one ofmy crew loooked like death, i decided to turn into ensenada..... we were, at that time, in calmer waters andlss winds-- turned on engine--- as we motored at course heading 130, in calmness, the ships bell decid to fall to the deck--!!!!!!!!
ok-- we continued into ensenada, caught the dock at botes juanitos, and tied up. sleep was awesome!
next morning we learned the port was closed due to the winds being severe---- storm coming in--we just made it to hide from it-- the front stretched to just south of turtle bay--- tooo far to run in the dark night --we were smart to come in from it. we would have pushed boat and sick crew waaay too far---
omens rock, and guardian angels happen to be real.......always pay attention not only to weather but also to the omens and weirdnesses given to ye-- we watched building seas and freshening winds --
we are gooood to go thu or sat, as new crew is coming tue nite...rogue-ish waves happen for a reason and gusts indicate the upcoming freshening. donot ignore these small warnings.
smoooth sailing !!!
