Super Hurricane Patricia comes ashore near Manzanillo

A huge hurricane,  Patricia packed winds of at least 150 knots.  Coming ashore near Manzanillo,  Patricia is the strongest  hurricane ever to hit the Americas (and possibly anywhere).

Our thoughts go out to friends with boats in the area, and especially to the Mexicans living and working in the area.

Cruising boats in Barra de Navidad fared pretty well; locals not so well. Friends Betty Anne and David on SV Confidence have a full description of the experience of Hurricane Patricia on their blog:
