Emptied large propane 12 days ago Sail to Huahine +90nm
After 3 days in Moorea, we left expecting no wind. Instead, had a great calm sail, not a lot of swell. Tested out the LED bulbs that we put in our running lights, in our attempt to use less power at night. Arrived in Huahine to find that the pass to go to Avea bay was all the way to the north, arrived 2 hours later because of that.

Boisterious passage inbetween the atolls, but the wind died later that night so we used the iron wind to get to Tahiti. Tahiti from afar, looked like a sinking ship with all the lights and the shape of the island. It kept us busy for a while.
Sail to Rangiroa +580nm
Arrived into the anchorage with 30kts of winds, as always. It calmed down once we arrived inside, was our first time anchoring amongst coral heads. We learned how to keep our anchor rode off the ground using fenders as floats!

Sail to La Paz +910nm
Very long and painful sail, left with big weather from the north. With the wind at our back it wasn't too bad though. Stopped in Bahia Tortugas for one night, seeing as there was no wind. Left the next day, tore our mainsail, but fixed it up again underway. Rounded the bottom of baja california to get into the sea of Cortez and met a wall of wind. Had to wait in San Jose Del Cabo for the weather to settle before we could motor our way up. Stopped at Playa Bonanza before making the run to La Paz.

Celebrated our crossing into Mexico with a japanese beer, figures. Tried to anchor at Todos Santos islands at night, but the anchorage was full of fish pens and large moorings. We left, and anchored somewhere we weren't supposed to in the Ensenada Harbour. Woke up to police calling out to us at 5am, telling us that we were sitting where the cruiseships come when they let off passengers. Found out you couldn't anchor anywhere in Ensenada anymore, so we went to Baja Naval... can't say we've been to a marina with such swell before. Had to make sacrificial lines to spare our docking lines from chafe.
Sail to San Diego +160nm
Stressful times crossing big shipping lanes around Long Beach, after that the wind died and we had to motor-sail. The swells near San Diego were unpleasant, and we got stuck in a kelp bank after entering the harbour. Fun times.
