Isala Isabela

We anchored on the south side of Isla Isabela at about 8am this morning after a good two day sail. Most of the sail was with NW winds 15 to 20kts with a reefed main only or sometimes with some jib out. We made an over 160 mile run on the first day under sail. Last night after midnight the wind died and we had to motor in till this morning. The island is a World Heritage site due to the extensive amount of bird life. Approaching the islands all you can see is thousands of birds flying at about zero to 40 feet -- an air traffic control nightmare. After we clean up and see how well our anchor holds over this all rock bottom, we'll hike in shore and look for boobies, then its in the pool for a dive.
