Our fall was marked with weeklong periods of being held up in different anchorages hiding from the brunt of intense northers (25-35kt of wind from the north) followed by two days of calm to go out and play. The fall through the spring is supposed to be the “cruising season” in the Sea of Cortez, but the summer is way better. The water is too cold to go in without a wetsuit (a 7mm wetsuit at that!) and visibility drops dramatically. It’s not uncommon to be quarantined to the boat for a few days at a time while waiting out the wind. We still managed to have a ton of fun in some beautiful places with great friends. We found that when the wind is blowing it’s a great time to explore on land.
