Jean Paul Bart & Jim 5 days

Jean Paul Bart & Jim 5 days

Jean Paul, Bart & Jim for 5 days of wind

Jean Paul lives in San Miguel de Allende, his son Bart in Dallas and Jim is in Tucson. We had 5 days of all conditions from light wind to strong wind and cloudy days to sunny days. We sailed three distinctly different sailing vessels this week. Our 32 ft Ericsson, then a 36 PDQ catamaran and the last day we hauled ass on our custom 36 ft. double AA Piver Windsplitter! The fishing didn’t suck either, we caught many bonita and a yellowtail as well.

The soon to wed Pete from England and Alejandra from Puebla, a full week of great wind & snorkeling

So the great thing about teaching sailing in September is that opportunity to drop the anchor at various spots in the bay and enjoy the warm blue water that the Sea of Cortes is famous for. Wind can be spotty in September but Alejandra and Pete had pretty much 7 days of decent wind. We were never skunked and had sailable wind every day. The local population of Bottle nose dolphins that we are doing research on even came to visit us sailing in the bay on two consecutive days. Pete and Alejandra are also a sky divers and Pete is a base jumper so it was fun to see some of his videos of BASE jumping in England. It has renewed my interest in sky diving so I might just have to do it!!! Thanks again fo Pete and Alejandra for coming down, I hope to visit you guys some days across the pond!!!

Here are some pics from the Week!!

Verne, Antonio & Dave had some great days and got to sail a Norm Cross 50 ft. Trimaran

I have a video I will post on our sailing course and some of Verne’s ID pictures of dolphins soon!! Thanks everyone!!



Paul & Jo completed 101 in 3 days, now they own a Norm Cross 50!!

Paul and Jo had three nice days of sailing in the middle of March. We even got to see a nice group of common dolphin about 5 miles off shore. Unfortunately we didn’t get a local bottle nose dolphin day. After completing the 101 basic keel boat they went ahead a purchased a piece of sailing history. A Norm Cross 50 ketch rigged multihull. I will get the pictures posted of that boat pronto!!
