Re: Baja Haha

third day did the kids thing, hotspur, terrapin, coastal drifter-- not certain all did haha but they all came from cali or pnw to mexico with kids plural.
there is a very long list of families who haha'd and came here independently.
i know you will have fun, and so will the kids.
welcome and an early welcome to mexico. is lovely here--make sure you take the kids to the volcanoes that are currently active. very pretty and interesting. and the pyramids and petroglyphs and other inland awesomenesses. the indian cultures that helped to create this mexico are fascinating, but , then i am into that anthropological and archeological time wasting irrelevant balderdash.. ha h aha h a.
at the pre ha ha parties you will meet families doing the ha ha, some are repeat haha-ers.
have a fun ha ha and many beautiful memories and learning experiences. see ye when ye get here.

Re: Baja Haha

found something may be of interest to you--is lectronic latitude 38-- article on ha ha starting hallowe'en---
Quote:
The Grand Poobah is calling this fall’s Baja Ha-Ha, the 23rd, the ‘Trick or Treat Ha-Ha’ because the fleet will be leaving San Diego on Halloween. We’ve moved the starting date back a week from previous years in deference to late-season tropical storms and in the belief that there will be more slips available at Marina Cabo San Lucas because the fishing tournaments will be over.

The Ha-Ha is, of course, the nothing-too-serious 750-mile cruisers' rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, with stops at Turtle Bay and Bahia Santa Maria. The event is open to boats that were designed, built and have been maintained for open-ocean sailing. Owners of smaller boats may be considered. For example, last year Tom Carr of Santa Cruz entered his Mirror Offshore 27, which is actually 19 feet long, and had a great time. Such a great time that he and Bluebird are entered again this year.

To date 123 skippers have paid up for the Ha-Ha. Other than Carr’s boat, the smallest is Michael Geatz’s San Diego-based Catalina 27 Wind Kisser. The biggest is Endearing, Dean and Roxane Sutherland’s Vancouver, Washington-based Ocean Alexander 80. Yes, motoryachts are welcome in the Ha-Ha, and a number of others have signed up this year. The biggest sailboat is Jack Hanson and Southern Lady, LLC’s Tayana Deck Salon 58 Majestic. Among the multihulls is Arthur Howell and Amy Snodgrass’ Hedley Nicol/Islander trimaran Ellipsis, a 30-ft tri from the 1960s.


Yes, there will be the annual Cruisers versus the Turtle Bay Kids baseball game, in which everyone bats — and often.

One of the few woodie entries is Tom Measles’ Ventura-based Kettenburg 50 Cut to Heal. The entry with the name that the Poobah finds the most curious is Greg and Lisa Bridges' Bend, Oregon-based Gulfstar 50 Beach Flea. She’s a near-sistership to Patsy ‘La Reina del Mar’ Verhoeven’s Talion, which just arrived in Hawaii from the South Pacific on her way home for the Ha-Ha start. We’re also chuffed to see that Jim Drake, who was the captain of our Ocean 71 Big O’s adventure to Turkey and back to the Caribbean, has entered his San Francisco-based Cavalier 30 Boo’s Blue along with his wife Jeannette.

Since this will be the ’Trick or Treat Ha-Ha’, we’ve ordered special Halloween-colored burgees, as you can see in the accompanying photo. As you might be aware, the entry packets were rather late going out because we were waiting and waiting for the flags to arrive from China. Finally, the Poobah had the entry packs sent out without them. As you might expect, the flags arrived at our office the very next day.

It goes without saying that we expect everyone to be in costume not only for the Ha-Ha Kick-Off Party on Sunday October 30, but also for the Monday morning start on the 31st — Halloween. It’s not too early to start working on your costume.


It's important to make wise decisions in life. So when you're asked where you want to be in early November, freezing your butt off in chilly California, or reveling in the warmth and beauty of Bahia Santa Maria, we hope you answer correctly.

Profligate, Latitude’s Surfin’ 63 catamaran, will be the mothership once again this year. The event will be managed by the Grand Poobah/Publisher of Latitude, who will be doing his 22nd Ha-Ha; Assistant Poobah/Mr. Puddle Jump Andy Turpin, on his 21st Ha-Ha; and Doņa de Mallorca, Head of Security, on her 21st Ha-Ha. It will also be Profligate’s 20th Ha-Ha. She knows the way so well we don’t even have to navigate.

We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for the start. We're pretty much ready to go — except for the fact that Profligate is still in La Cruz, 1,000 miles to the south.

Re: Baja Haha

I'd write a letter to Latitude 38 and ask if anyone if bringing kids. Most anyone going will be reading it and Lat38 goes out of their way for things like this. We went once and several kid boats. I think there usually are.

Re: Baja Haha

We came down with on the ha-ha last year. There were 3 or 4 kids boats and they all typically anchored near each other so they could all get together and have fun.

You won't have any problems finding the kids boats... just follow the screaming and playing noises.
