31° 51.7323 N -116° 39.6755 W

Punta Santo Tomas

The next jump is either 40 nm to Bahia Colonet Bight 30° 57.9028 N  116° 17.0747 W - details at https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-colonet-bight

https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-colonet-bight

Or an extra 30nm  Isla San Martin  North bay 30° 29.178 N -116° 6.1356 W or South Anchorage depending on swell https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/isla-san-martin

30° 29.178 N -116° 6.1356 W

For a more protective bay especially for those who wish to bash back up here is Bahia San Quintin
- the west side 30° 22.5924 N -115° 59.0887 W  is more shallow and
the main bay has depth to suit all drafts  - do give the entrance a
wide berth as there is shoaling south of the little peninsula

For a more protective bay especially for those who wish to bash back up here is Bahia San Quintin - the west side 30° 22.5924 N -115° 59.0887 W is more shallow and the main bay has depth to suit all drafts - do give the entrance a wide berth as there is shoaling south of the little peninsula

The
west side 30° 22.5924 N -115° 59.0887 W  is more shallow and the
main bay has depth to suit all drafts  - do give the entrance a
wide berth as there is shoaling south of the little peninsula  -
this is about 110 nm south of Ensenada.

South of this - about 39 nm is a fair weather anchorage at  29° 47.3276 N  115° 47.4296 W  behind ISLA SAN GERNOMIO - watch for 2 rocks south of it @ 29° 44.2191' N 115° 46.2265' W https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/isla-san-geronimo-e

San Geronimo

The next anchorage is a staple along the route FONDADERO SAN CARLOS Especially for those on a northbound track @  29° 37.3596 N  115° 28.565 W This anchorage is 68 nm South of Sna Quintin - expect some kelp patches and shoaling on the northern bight https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/fondadero-san-carlos

Fondadero San Carlos

South ~ 80 nm across the bay of Sebastian Vizcaino is Isla Cedros N - aka the Cedros Island Yacht club anchorage  at  28° 20.212 N -115° 11.434 W https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/isla-cedros-n

Expect
to hear sea-lions on shore - this is often a waiting spot for yachts
heading north on the baja bash as they time their departures for an
early morning jump with low winds - the seas and winds will pipe up in
the afternoons - it's a high energy crossing especially in the
afternoons

Isla Cedros North

The east coast of Isla Cedros has several anchorages; the northern
anchorage is a roadstead exposed to weather from both north and south.

Cedros n

Bypassing a few anchorages on the East and South of Isla Cedros ~

50 nm south is Turtle Bay / Bahia Tortugas
27° 41.2544 N -114° 53.2545 W  - a large bay with anchorage and an
enterprising dusty village where you can procure fuel albeit with
significant mark ups - the dock is left from an abandoned cannery and
the fuel station is up a hill in the center near the cellphone
tower 

 27° 41.2544 N -114° 53.2545 W

The locals will try to sell you fuel from pangas or via the fuel dock -
watch these transactions and confirm quality of the fuel, volume and
pricing before accepting any transactions - the Baja Fuel Filter was
invented here for a reason so may as well use it  ! You are at the
half way point towards Cabo San Lucas
https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-tortugas

Fuel Dock

The next jump is about 50 nm to Bahia Asuncion   27° 08.1355 N  114° 17.4206 W  https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-asuncion

The
bay at Asuncion is home to the local fishing fleet and harvesting
shellfish is one of the main sources of income for the community. The
water is incredibly clear and no discharge is allowed to be dumped into
bay in order to preserve the high quality of the abalone.

 27° 8.1355 N -114° 17.4206 W

Or push it another 24 nm to Bahia San Hipolito This
is a marginal anchorage exposed to wind and swell from north and south.
Anchor close to the beach in 6.4m on sand. @  26° 59.3362 N -113°
57.6966 W 
https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-san-hipolito

 

This is a marginal anchorage exposed to wind and swell from north and south. Anchor close to the beach in 6.4m on sand.

A far more protected anchorage is 50 nm south of Bahia Asuncion or 105 nm south of Turtle bay is Bahia Ballenas @ 26° 46.0426 N -113° 30.0266 W https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-ballenas

https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-ballenas

A prime spot along this coast is San Juanico / Scorpion Bay @  26° 14.7986 N  112° 28.333 W about  nm SE from Bahia Ballenas - with friendly locals and expats In
the mid-seventies surfers noticed the amazing waves peeling off Punta
Pequeña as the swell wraps around into Bahia San JuanicoI. The village
is host to a couple of abarrotes and restaurants and beach palapas.

San Juanico Scorpion Bay Anchorage
Scorpion Bay

Another 85 nm to Bahia Santa Maria
a major stop and wide bay with fisheries and cell signal  24°
46.133 N  112° 15.441 W
https://goodnautical.com/mexico-pacific/anchorage/bahia-santa-maria

Bahia Santa Maria

Bahia Santa Maria
is a large crescent shaped bay which lies just south of Cabo San
Lazaro. It is defined to the north and south by rocky islands and
bounded to the east by a narrow strip of sand ridges which separates it
from the huge lagoon of Bahia Magdalena behind.

Bahia Santa Maria
 There is no permanent settlement in Bahia Santa Maria but a dinghy ride up
into river channels at the north end of the bay reveals a cluster of
fishing shacks with brightly colored pangas tied up along the bank. From
November to May itinerant fishermen stay in the bay to fish for tuna,
jacks and dorado.
Jump

The final jump an overnight sail to Cabo San Lucas ( WEEKEND MORNINGS ARE TOUGH IN CABO MANY FISHING VESSELS LEAVE A T THAT TIME SO TRY TO ARRIVE AFTER  9 AM )

~ 185 nm with no real stops along the way - as soon as you round the
cabe the warmer tropical air will welcomr you to Cabo San Lucas - best
not to arrive Weekendsbetween 6 and 9 AM as scores of fishing vessels
are leaving Cabo and will produce eneourous wakes and traffic. Anchor at

5) MEET THE OTHER POSSES

THE SOUTH PACIFIC POSSE AND THE ATLANTIC POSSE

PANAMA PACIFIC CARIBBEAN ATLANTIC

6 ½ year ago the Panama Posse formed as a small adventurous group of cruisers pointed their bows south along the Pacific Coast of North America to Panama.

There was no set schedule just a shared spirit for adventure and a desire to help each other out along the way. The experience was a success and the group has grown into a posse of many more boats. Over the years Posse boats are spreading out, going different directions, and across different oceans. November 2023 marks the beginning of our 7th season and the initiation of 2 new Posses: The South Pacific Posse ( currently underway ) and the Atlantic Posse. Beginning in Season 7 our fleet updates will bring the spirit of adventure, insight, and information from multiple routes into one newsletter.

Our goal is to bring the spirit of adventure and exploration to your inbox every week with inspiration from an ever broadening field of cruisers. We will be combining the fleet updates to include stories from Posse members on different routes each week. As an example, this month we are going to include a splash from the South Pacific Posse.

South Pacific Posse

Exploration of the dramatic Marquesas

marquesas

These islands were once the home of tens of thousands of Polynesians

Legendary Pampelmousse and local fruits grow among breadfruit plant or 'uru, the coconut, the dozens of varieties of bananas including the incomparable orange plantain banana or fe'i, various root vegetables such as the taro, the tarua, the ufi, and the 'umara make up the basis of island cuisine

 5) MARQUESAS REDUX 🇵🇫 FRENCH POLYNESIA

For anyone still in Marquesas or heading there our favorite anchorage was Hanatefau Bay in Tahuata. There is sand and good holding on the north side. The morning light is magical, there are spinner dolphins swimming around the bay most days. Hapatoni village is beautiful and the people are friendly. We got to see a traditional Marquesian performance, pick fruit with a local woman and eat an amazing lunch at her home.

 Fatu Hiva is absolutely stunning and when we were there some cruisers organized a type of circus acro yoga performance with the village kids that was really sweet.

9) ⚠️ BOATING LICENSE REQUIREMENT IN MEXICO

You are required to have a boating license while you are navigating your boat in Mexican waters. Every boat owner, operator, and captain at the helm of a vessel must have a boating license that states you are qualified to operate the vessel. If you have a foreign flagged vessel in Mexican waters then you must have the proper operating license issued by the state or country where you registered your vessel. EVEN IF A BOATING LICENSE IS NOT REQUIRED IN YOUR HOME COUNTRY, MEXICO REQUIRES ONE IN THEIR WATERS.

The Mexican authorities will likely ask for a copy of a boating license if you are involved in an accident aboard your boat. They may ask you for it upon check in to and/or check out from their country, Be prepared ahead of arrival into Mexico.

There is a list on the Posse website of state specific sites where one can obtain a certificate through their state. There are multiple types of documents that qualify as a license in addition to those found on the website.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND SPOT

pone of the tracking devices which has caused the biggest issues in the last 3 months has been SPOT which runs on GlobalStar. The issue is that GLOBALSTAR Is NOT global nor does it work GLOBALLY - so if you plan to eventually sail across an ocean please consider a viable option -
just ask AARON >>

15) HAPPY 4TH OF JULY 🇺🇸

happy 4th of july

During the first year of the American Revolution, one of the most heroic events for U.S. flagged vessels was the capture of the British warship HMS Margaretta by the crew of the American privateer Unity. This incident occurred June 12, 1775 off the coast of Massachusetts.

UNITY

The British ship HMS Margaretta had been enforcing British trade regulations and attempting to suppress American colonial resistance. The American privateer Unity, under the command of Captain Jeremiah O'Brien, was determined to challenge British authority and secure supplies for the rebel forces.
