“Now for Something Completely Different” (Christopher Trace)

Every sail boat we meet has its own unique story. With that said, there are certain similarities to some of these tales. For example, we are not the only middle aged couple from the Pacific Northwest that is out here. Mi Vieja (my old lady) stands apart as the only sailboat we’ve met (to date) who is owned by Alex, a retired U.S. Navy vet from Nicaragua and crewed by Julio a longtime fisherman and weather whisperer, and Martin a twenty three year old Californian.  We met Mi Vieja and her crew in Barra de Navidad where they were resting on their trip to Nicaragua where Alex plans to retire.  The last we heard, they had made it the 560 miles to Hualtulco where they were waiting for a weather window to cross Bahia de Tehuantepec.
