Vad...

As you said, couldn't be more different. The nights were more peaceful than my flat in San Francisco. OK unfair comparison as the wind shakes the place in the late afternoon. I've never slept more secure for a week on a sailboat.

We had over 20+ knots out of the NW for our initial passage from the mooring base in la paz to espirtu santo, then little for the rest of the week. maybe an hour average each day. Guess the message would be earlier in the winter is better for comfort and I guess you just have to get lucky with regards to wind ... and whale spotting ... we weren't so luck there, but, it appears to be quite common when cruising in the sea of cortez.
