Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Puerto Isla Mujeres Resort & Yacht Club

We left the Hobbies on April 15th sailing for over 24 hours using only the spinnaker until we dropped it the next day.  The remainder of our trip was uneventful and a bit slow due to the light winds.  We arrived Isla Mujeres, Mexico at 10 a.m. on April 18th and docked at Puerto Isla Mujeres Resort & Yacht Club.  They arranged for our check in with immigration and customs which included drug and bomb sniffing dogs.

Our friend and crew member Dave had not been feeling well since we left the Hobbies, so we went to the doctor, got some medicine.  He still wasn't feeling well so decided to cut his trip short and fly back to North Carolina.  We really appreciated all his help and was glad to hear later that he was doing well.  Thanks again Dave for your help.

Rankin and I stayed in Isla Mujeres for a few more days relaxing, enjoying the local cuisine, doing a few minor boat chores and waiting on a good weather window.   On April 25th, Rankin and I left Isla Mujeres and sailed North for Bradenton, Florida.
