Leg 7 - Turtle Bay to Magdalena Bay
Leg 7 - Turtle Bay to Mag Bay with a stop at Bahia Asunción
March 11 2007
60 nm/12 hrs to Asunción
211 nm/48 hrs to Mag Bay

It's was finally time to say goodbye to our friends in Turtle Bay. The weather was right and it was time to
move on. We day sailed to Asunción about 60 nm south. Arrived at 9:30 pm our first night arrival. Estrella, a
boat we have been sharing anchorages with helped guide us in. Thank you.
We hit the sack and were underway at 9:30 the next morning with Estrella on our heels. We ran into thick fog
which stayed for most of the day. The next morning we were contacted thru VHF radio by the owners of s/v
Surfer Girl a boat that was anchored a few hundred feet from us in Turtle Bay. We are sorry to report that s/v
Surfer Girl grounded about 20 nm north of San Juanico during the night. All aboard are safe and were taken in
by a local Mexican family. According to the owners she is a total loss and they were trying to salvage what
they could. Our hearts go out to them.
This passage took us about 50 nm offshore so we were pretty happy to see Cabo San Lazaro, the point north
of the Mag Bay entrance. Once inside we headed for Puerto Magdalena about 8 nm north. We were
disappointed we didn't see some whale activity  on the way in. We dropped the hook next to s/v Sweetie who
we had also shared anchorages with. Estrella arrived about 2 hrs later.

Getting the bad news about s/v Surfer Girl.
A well earned rest after a long watch.
Happy girl with Cabo San Lazaro in the background.
