March 17, 2016, was intended to be a leisurely passage of a big ol' 14 miles so we didn't raise anchor until almost lunch time. The forecasts on the two different cruisers' single-sideband frequencies were completely incompatible with each other ("SE to SW" versus "NE"). As it happened our actual weather conditions were completely incompatible with both of them. We saw due-east breeze less than 15 knots, which we'll just call an "inconsistent, localized weather pattern." That way, nobody's wrong.
Seas were calm and Bahía Santo Domingo is protected to the east, so our choice of it as an anchorage worked out very well in our conditions. One of the two sailboats we'd spent the night with at Punta Chivato was already anchored here, as was another small trimaran. About 10 commercial shrimpers were holding station further out in the bay without having their nets deployed. We guessed that they were waiting for nightfall to start work offshore, and we later learned we'd guessed correctly.
At about 0300 we heard a small pod of dolphin moving past The Fox. We never get tired of hearing sounds like those.
We spent two calm days and nights here. I can tell you that the Santo Domingo beach was thoroughly combed for seashells. And no Africanized bees this time!
