Isla Partida – Espiritu Santo to Isla San Francisco
November 28, 2018
We use headsail against the waves plus motoring 22 miles all the way to Isla San Francisco. Not pleasure sailing. The forecast 5-10 knot winds developed into 25Knot + So we went as fast as we could. Instead of building the wind subsided and then switched to the West, which is the open side of the anchorage we were in. We anchored one night then leave next day early in the morning. It is 10 miles to the village of San Evaristo. No wind so we motored again and had the anchor set by breakfast time. We picked a spot that had us sheltered from the West and North in the bay. The wind set up from the South East.

San Evaristo is our new place by the book to stop for good shelter. They said a lovely small fisherman village with one Tienda and one restaurant. Easy beach landing is correct.
Spending time a week to get to know the place and see hard working fishermen in and out with panga. The west wind start and change a direction to north and then east. Hard to prediction to go further north. There is no internet or wi-fi it used to have but got canceled a year ago.
Lupe a restaurant owner is welcoming and friendly.
Everyday Fishermen in the village will leave early morning to collect fish from small camp called Isla Coyote that we did not have a chance to shop. Around 3-4 p.m. A truck came from La Paz or Cabo San Lucas will pick up all fish that cover with ice to transport back to city. They work hard and we can see the close in their family.
