Jimmy's great sailing adventure continues....
Jim and I just returned from a 3-week sail around a very small portion of the Sea of Cortez. Our travels were aided immensely by a book by Shawn Breeding and Heather Bansmer – locally referred to as "Shawn and Heather's book" but when you are buying it, ask for "SEA OF CORTEZ – A Cruiser's Guidebook". It lists anchorages in bays all the way from Cabo San Lucas up the Sea of Cortez to San Felipe at the top and then over to Puerto Periasco and down to San Carlos and Guaymas. Apart from showing all the soundings in the bays and preferred anchorages in the bay, it includes excellent descriptions of the area, hiking trails (Mexican-style), points of interest and interesting tidbit information of sea life and plant life.
