We left Ixtapa at about 5pm on Friday and arrived at Acapulco at noon on Saturday after a very pleasant, easy 110 mile sail under power with little or no winds.
The Acapulco ‘Club de Yates’ is all “med mooring” which is short for mediterreanian mooring. This means that all boats tie off their front to a mooring ball and then back into the dock where they tie off. It is tight but we made it.
I am hoping to get a/c installed here as the weather forecast for Acapulco is Sunny and 32c every single day this week, except for Wednesday, which they are calling for Abundantly Sunny and 32c. Quite the wide variety of weather they get here!
I haven’t even got off the boat yet so haven’t seen the town at all yet, but will soon…
Mike (nickname Sea Breeze) is set to take off on Tuesday… he decided just to fly to Nicaragua as he wanted to go there but didn’t want to spend the 70 hours sailing there, opting instead for the 8 hour flight… what’s he really gonna do with those extra 62 hours anyway? It can’t be better than sitting on a boat with me, staring at each other. 😛
So, anyone interested in doing Central America? I haven’t decided how long I want to stay in Acapulco for… maybe a week, maybe longer… but then will likely want to go down through Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and then Panama.
