We have been motoring continuously for over 30 hours and are now out of the Gulf of Tehuantepec with no weather incidents. At some point last night we confirmed the forecast of no gap wind and cut a few dozen miles off our trip by leaving the beach and cutting across.
2100 UTC position: 15d41'N, 96d47'W motoring into light chop and headwinds at 8.3 kn along the beach just past Puerto Angel.
Still only catching skipjack (two more before giving up again) but have sighted two sea turtles and some dolphins.
Checked in to the Amigo Net this morning (1400 UTC, 8122 USB) for the first time and spoke with net control in La Cruz (near Puerto Vallarta) where we are headed next.
We have about 72 hrs to go if we don't stop.
