Crossing the Tehuantepec

Like the other challenging passages we've made, crossing the Tehuantepec is, so far, a non-event. The key is to time it properly and wait for the window, be it wind or tide. We bided our time in Huatulco and Oaxaca, and as a result, we don't even have enough wind to turn off the engine. We're hoping that will change because we'd really rather sail. We're about a day and a half away from the southern end of the gulf, so there's time yet. Until then, our passages along the Oregon and northern California coast remain our most exciting and uncomfortable.
