A Rough Passage

We are now anchored safely in Tenacatita, a very protected spot along this coast of Mexico.  We left Bahia de Santiago just after sun-up yesterday morning and had a nice offshore breeze to send us on our way.  The winds were light until almost noon and we were only 10 miles from our destination.  The winds then really piped up from the NW right on our nose.  They increased thru-out the afternoon reaching 30 mph by 3PM and the seas built too, giving us big waves.  Lanikai’s deck got thoroughly washed with the big waves coming onboard, as we now tacked our way up the coast arriving at the outside of the bay just after sunset.  We anchored in the dark, but with the full moon and with waypoints from prior visits to the bay, it was no problem.  Today we are both sore and tired from the passage and will probably stay here a few days before moving on.
