From the desert to the tropics: LaPaz to Banderas Bay

On February 22 we left LaPaz to begin the 300 mile crossing to the mainland.  We chose to head directly to Banderas Bay, where friends were arriving, rather than take the shorter course to Mazatlan.  After three nights, including some great sailing, we were within a half day of Punta de Mita, the Bay’s northern boundary.  Eulalie noticed an orange float (a plastic coke bottle painted orange) trailing behind.  The float turned out to be part of commercial long line.  Eric went over the side and was able to clear the line from Elizabeth Jean’s rudder.  Later that day we arrived in Banderas Bay.  During our passage we crossed the Tropic of Cancer, putting us squarely into the tropic’s heat and humidity.
