Giving Thanks in the Sea of Cortez

Sometimes the Corsair 31 acts like a sailboat. Sometimes she acts more like an adventure raft. This week she got to play both roles. On Tuesday we were sailing at up to 17.5 kts, and on Wednesday we quietly motored into Honeymoon Cove on Isla Danzante. The next day she was on the trailer and we were home in SoCal. Easy!

driving the trimaran

No better place

Weather in the Sea of Cortez is ideal in the spring and fall months. Driving a trimaran while sitting out on the nets is like driving a convertible on a summer day.

Danzante Island, just a couple of hours sail from Puerto Escondido, boasts one of the finest anchorages around: Honeymoon Cove. Pull the boat on the beach and enjoy hiking and snorkeling all within sight of the boat.

Exploring the island

Nearby Carmen Island is ringed by beautiful white sand beaches—and surprisingly secluded. On the far side of the island there is an old salt mine where you can see the remains of old fishing boats on the shore.
