Ipala + Movie

Since we had packed up the dinghy the evening before, we were able to leave when the sun came up, which was around 7:20 am. We had to motorsail at first, but soon were able to get rid of the humming sound of the motor and had a good sail all the way to Ipala, around the sometimes sketchy Point “Cabo Corrientes.

We passed little Islands, saw lots of whales in the distance, had dolphins swimming with us for a short time and we tried out that fishing thing again. In an hourly rythm, I exchanged the lures just for fun and the third time I was still letting the line out, a fish got on the hook. I wheeled it in in excitement, but we could not figure out right away, what kind of fish it was. So we let it free before risking him to suffer and later with more time in hand, found out that it was a Mackerel.

Big shrimp fishing boats marked the entrance of the Ipala anchorage and both our eyes on Navionics, we found our anchor spot and chilled. We had arrived already at 2:30pm, but were still tired form the sail. Ipala shore looked like a cute little place with a nice beach and some restaurants, but we decided to not set up the dinghy and rest instead. Plan was an early departure the next morning for the 50 miles towards Chamela.
