Huatulco to Puerto Chiapas, 1 March 06:45

Well, we're through the worst of it.

Tehuantepec threw 30 knots at us, bashing on a close reach through steep seas, lots of spray and pounding. It lasted about 5 hours, starting at midnight. First time I have worn full foulies since California! Drenched a few times by blowing spray.

Fun for me. Spooked Renee a little.

Now we're sailing downwind in 18 knots with a gentle following sea. This is expected to peter out soon and we'll be back to motoring before noon, I expect.
