2008 Baja Ha-Ha

Am I missing all of the "who is going" threads? Is this the right place?

Who is going? Who is going from the SF Bay area or even more North? How long are you budgeting to get to San Diego?

We are looking into the 09 haha, we had good friends head down on the 07. They gave them selves about 6 weeks so they did not have to rush and could enjoy the trip down on there own terms.

Jack on your boat 4-6 days for S.D. Lots of nice places to stop along the way. Take a month, and enjoy it. In 93 when I went it was a loose situation. A few years later it became organized, and more fun for participants. I was #141, and later got my naked butt printed in Lat38....oh the fame.....lololololol

I will take my time from the Ha-Ha on. Its a bit of a race to get prepared in time and a friend has decided to go- even if I assume only 5 days to get to SD he is taking a month off work... Besides, I've got 35 of years of California exposure. Its time to get out of Dodge!

Where do you plan on cruising in Mexico? We aren't doing the HaHa, but we will be heading down to mainland Mexico mid-January.

Jack:
As yours is one of the more rare smaller boats entered I'll be following your progress. I'm hoping to get south in another couple of years (either the Ha Ha or more slowly on my own). Take your time and enjoy. And if you need a hand with anything from Alameda, let me know.

Here is a link to the 2008 event. In the entry list - 133 so far I saw a newport 30, Nor'sea 27 and several 34-36 footers.

The biggest issue will be staying remotely in touch with the fleet. You will be amazed at the daily distance difference between a 30 footer and a 45 footer.

Tn- I will hang around Cabo for a bit then head generally south until I hit Panama, run out of money, get bored, or sink. There is still a chance I will head up to check out the sea but I am leaning away from that plan at the moment. After Cabo I have nothing scheduled.

Squeaks- I hope to there is enough progress to make that interesting! I will keep that offer for help in mind.

Ex- I looked through the list and the smallest thing I saw was a Catalina 30 but maybe my eyes are just bad. I don't relish the thought of being the smallest boat!

Maybe the girls will think I am the guy that is compensating the least?

Sounds like fun! Keep an eye out for "Aita Pe'ape'a", our 33 foot cat. We will be making our way down from San Blas to Manzanillo for a departure to the Marquesas in April.

Jack,

Just from our point of view...
Don't pass up the Sea of Cortez!

We have met people who have cruised far and wide, some have taken as much as 17 years to circumnavigate. Almost every one of them said that some of the BEST cruising in the world is in the Sea.

We are now on the mainland heading south, not because we were tired of the Sea, just to much remaining to see.....

Greg

Do you know of anyone that needs an experienced sailor to crew for the Baja haha? I sail out of Marina Sailing in Long Beach and am trying to get on a boat. My crew fell through and I do not think I will be able to get another crew by the 10th. I wouldnt fell comfortable going unless I was able to meet the individuals I will travel with. I am sailing out of Long Beach this weekend so feel free to contact me at conorATjanical.com.

Thank you imagine2frolic!

I came across the site right after I posted my message and I emailed a few skippers and have already gotten replys. Looks like I will be taking a few people out over the next few weeks to show my skills and knowledge to them. thanks for the help and I hope to be heading down.

What I really would want to do is help people travel down to Cabo, fly back to work for a month. Fly back to Puerto Vallarta, help them sail to ixtapa-zihuatanejo, fly up after taking a LONG bus ride. And maybe even helping someone sail to Hawaii, Fly back and then if needed, help them sail from HI to the US.

Someday I will be having my own boat, but since Im 30 that ant happening this year! Maybe in 3 years unless kids get in the mess!

notconor,

One of the scariest things I ever did in my life was a bus ride from San Quintin to San Diego, and back. I would rather be thrown from my boat again, or face Point Conception once more with 50+ mph of wind with 20ft+ seas alone. You PM me if you wish about this ride....................i2f
