Tuesday March 2
5:15am the military and their dog showed up at our boat. They had Zarpe for the other 5 boats leaving today but not us! A call was made to the marina manager.
A second military inspection at 9:30am, finally received our Zarpe, we’re off!!!
There are 6 boats leaving this morning heading north, we’re traveling with 5 of them. We have a weather window to cross the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
Tehuantepecers or Tehuanos are extreme winds produced in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, blowing south through Chivela Pass, the mountain gap across the isthmus, from the Gulf of Mexico into the Pacific Ocean.
