Roberto came back from Guadalajara for Basic Coastal

Roberto came back from Guadalajara for Basic Coastal

Roberto is well on his way to having a boat in Puerto Vallarta. He came back in April and took another class with us and completed his Basic Coastal Cruising course. We had three nice days of gorgeous northwesterly wind, not to windy not to calm. He is now looking for a boat to sail down in Banderas Bay!!

Ben & Brad: Basic Keel Boat on an island 30 built in 1966

Ben & Brad: Basic Keel Boat on an island 30 built in 1966

Ben from Mesa and Brad from Rio Rico came down for a two day course on Ben’s recent purchase of an 1966 Island 30 that he found on craigslist. It was kind of weird weather with some over cast clouds but we did have some decent wind and were able to get the boat moving. We covered a lot of stuff in two days and we wish Ben all the best on his new boat. We hope he will invite us out for a barbeque sometime!!

Catherine & Cheryl had 7 straight days of wind

Catherine & Cheryl had 7 straight days of wind

Catherin and Cheryl came down from Tucson Arizona and had seven perfect days. Day 1 was windy and they both got a bit sea sick, Day’s 2 through 5 were perfect sailing days with any where from 5 to 10 knots of wind. Day 6 the start of the over night Bareboat charter certification saw some seriously windy conditions. It was easily blowing 25 plus knots on the outside with 5 to 6 foots waves. Day 7, our final day, we had a lovely 10 knots to finish if off. We never sailed with the dolphins this week but we did get a chance to see some fin back whales in the bay. I also got a chance to see a fin back whale breaching. Which is a fairly rare occurrence. And what is even more rare is to get a picture of it, which I actually did.

So thanks so much to Catherine and Cheryl for coming down and taking a sailing course here in San Carlos. These gals are ready to charter a small boat any where in the world and did a great job sailing the trimaran back into the bay all by themselves on the last day.
