S/V ‘Freedom Kirkland’ Finds New Hideout in Beautiful Baja

A year ago we shared a photo on Sailagram of Kirk and Char Wagner’s sailboat S/V Freedom Kirkland, anchored, somewhere. The photo prompted one reader to ask where the boat was located. We gave no hints and let readers give us their best guess. The answer was “on the beach in Puerto Balandra on Isla Carmen.”

Recently the Wagners sent us a photo of Freedom Kirkland, again anchored somewhere exotic. This time we are going to drop a hint. Yes, it is somewhere in Mexico! But we’re looking for specifics — the name of the location, and, if you can pinpoint it, the name of the anchorage.

The answer is out there, somewhere …

    At first I thought Isla San Francisco, but I think from the hills in the background it is Punta Salina a bit north of Amortajada Lagoon, but it has to be from the west shore of Isla San Jose.
