We left Mazatlán on February 27th with Ann and Dick on Full & By as our buddy boat for the 250 mile sail to La Paz. We were looking forward to getting back to the Baja peninsula. It has been 10 years since we were there on Sol Mate, our first sailboat and we planned on spending at least 2 months exploring the bays. The winds were light and the seas were calm at about 6 pm when our engine stopped and we could not get it going. We made the decision to sail the 60 miles back to Mazatlán to make sure the problem was fixed. It was a slow go, we sailed as slow as 0.8 kt during the night. At daylight we bled the air out of the fuel lines and got the engine working. We made it back to Mazatlán by 5 pm.
Rafa has come to remove all our diesel, clean out the fuel lines and see what the problem is. Hopefully it will be a simple fix and we can get to La Paz in the next few weeks.
