//WL2K Bahia Concepcion
With wind on our nose most of the way, it took us about 10 hours to get to Bahia Santo Domingo on the northern end of the Bay of Concepcion. We dropped the anchor at 8:50pm with about 10 minutes left until totally dark, starry night. Talk about cutting it close 🙂
Sailing Report: weather reports turned out to be less accurate yesterday, and we had less favorable wind than I hoped for. The result was that we motorsailed most of the way. There were a couple nice moments where we could turn off the engine, but they were short.
Fishing Report: trolled for 10 hours and had one strong hit on the yellow/green cedar plug on the handline (about 5:30pm–same as the day before), but the mystery fish managed to avoid the hook and didn’t come back for a second attempt.
Whale Report: We saw a large, dark colored whale swimming with an enormous pod of dolphins. The pod made a line in the water at least a half mile wide. We watched them for 30 minutes or so and the whale stayed right in the middle of them the whole time.
We’re leaving this morning for Bahia Coyote, 8 miles to the south. We’re excited about visiting the small tienda and restaurant there and unloading the trash that is starting to pile up on board as well as replenishing our stock of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Position Report: Bahia Santo Domingo in Bahia Concepcion. We are anchored off of a small beach with a little fish camp. Last night we could see the lights of Mulege across the bay.

All is well on board. The wind is picking up from the northeast and we are looking forward to a fun 2-hour sail to Bahia Coyote.
