I anchored last night at Isla Damas, the Isle of Dames, but there weren’t any dames and I had the place all to myself. Isla Damas is a pretty desolate rock, but it has one beach with blinding white sand and some dunes behind, and this made it extraordinary, especially at sunset.

Condesa sailed away from her anchor this morning, and was back out into it at 8AM. There’s been a solid 25 knot wind out of the south, and she’s been averaging seven knots on a downhill run. There are many bays and coves along the way, but I’m trying to pick out the ones that DO NOT have a Port Captain. A simple overnight stop to get some sleep could cost me hours of paperwork, or getting held prisoner again for being solo.

I’m going to hang up up tonight at about midnight, ducking into a nice looking, portcaptainless little cove, making for a 100 mile day and I can still get a good night’s sleep.
