Passing Magdalena Bay

5 May

We’re passing Magdalena Bay, a huge protected harbor about 160 nm NW of Cabo San Lucas. We’ve decided to press on to Santa Maria Bay just 20 miles North of here. It’s supposed to have better protection from the prevailing NW winds. Waiting for a good weather window paid off as we did very little, if none bashing on this first leg of the Baja Bash. We passed Cabo Falso early morning and we were out of its convergence zone by mid-morning for a comfortable ride up the coast of Baja.
