March 10, 2014 Baja

Another awesome sailing day, yankee winged out on the pole and warm gentle breezes 10-12 knots. We are about 500 miles west of Isla Cedros and Bahia de Tortugas. Santa Ana winds are tearing up the coast and we’re in the best spot out here, well offshore! 1,700 miles to the equator. Great GRIBS and Wx fax reports for the next 8 days. Hoping to pick up the NE trades in a day or two. ITCZ showing normal patterns and we are well poised to cross the doldrums at a narrow point on our current angle of sail.
