What sort of boat did you have ?


Thanks for asking. A Contest 46/48. Two lengths according to who you were negotiating with innocent

Close hauled in the Francis Drake channel, BVI's. Autopilot holding 38° to the apparent.

Marina, Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Did my longest single handed voyage from their to Key West in just under 48 hours with help from the Gulf stream.

Hula was a sloop built in 1993 with in mast furling, removable cutter stay and self tacking staysail when deployed. 150% Genoa provided most of the power. Autopilot and single electric winch at rear of cockpit allowed easy single handed sailing. Retro-fitted with factory sugar scoop stern prior to my ownership hence the two lengths.

We stayed in Santa Maria on Sal in November 2015 in a small hotel Odjo d'Aqua right on the sea, but not All Inclusive. Lovely hotel with a good restaurant, they were building a lot of larger hotels/beach front resorts to the west of the town so that's probably what you are looking at. The weather was good from memory around 25C at that time.

Not much on the Island, it's pretty bare but there is an old Salt Mine further North and West of the airport for a trip out. As Giles says very friendly people and no hassle from the street traders, we liked Santa Maria town quaint with a number of nice restaurants.
