Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

Hi,

I am looking for a crew to help me out with the Baja Bash from La Paz or Cabo to San Diego. I plan on leaving around June 30th, weather permitting (I will be closely monitoring the weather given the season). The bash is typically a lot of motoring, and although I would prefer to sail, I am opting for the direct route for time and safety reasons. I would plan for 2 weeks as a time frame (more or less). I did a delivery late in the season (Late July) a few years back and did not encounter much of a bash at all (no wind, glassy seas, easy motor). Hopefully, this will be the same.

I would prefer someone with experience, particularly in watch keeping. I am a 100 ton licensed Captain and quite capable to run my vessel, but I really would like another set of eyes. I am happy to teach if that is something you are interested in. Most of all, I am looking for a laid back, safety conscious individual that I can count on to keep watch.

The boat is a 1978 Acapulco cutter 40' that has recently been restored. Everything has been replaced recently, so she is solid. Very comfortable, heavy, safe boat. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions. Thanks.

Mike

This is a one way trip?

Yes, a one way trip for now. My wife is having a baby soon, so we don't know when we'll make it back down just yet.

Re: Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

I'm assuming you are looking for a watch-stander. Are you planning on doing this with a crew of two? Yourself and one other? This is an uphill slog if I read the pilot charts correctly.

Re: Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

Makrock2,

I will be doing the bash a few days ahead of you, hopefully around June 24. If we fit between storms we should be alright. I only have VHF, but I'll listen for you on 16.

Cheers, Bill

Re: Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

Will be heading north later this year or early next. Interested that two of you are doing it 'out of season'. How much of a risk do you reckon it is and is there a time of the year you would not go? I am starting from Panama

Yes, I plan to do this with a crew of 2, however, I can take more if necessary. It is an uphill slog. Montevideo, I hope we will be that close behind you. I may be delayed a few days longer. Have a good trip up. The weather seems to be perfect right now.

Re: Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

Makrok2,
No problem. I just got word from my friend aboard Scout, who left La Paz on June 8, that he just left Turtle Bay yesterday, due to winds. He was there with about 8 other boats awaiting a weather window. I thought he would be back here by now. If we avoid a hurricane or TD, we should be ok as we approach July. Good luck and maybe we will meet in Turtle Bay.
Cheers, Bill

Re: Baja Bash-La Paz to San Diego

UPDATE: I will be delayed leaving by one week because I have decided to service my mast before the trip just to be on the safe side. I am still in need of crew planning for the second week in July. Thanks.
