You might want to re-thing that. Or maybe you were not writing precisely. Just ignore the following if this is stuff you already know.
You do not want to be south of San Diego
or Ensenada until November 1 or October 21 at the earliest.
Cabo is a horrible place to be in a hurricane. There is no possible anchorage available and slips will run about $2/foot/night for a mono-hull.
There are no safe hurricane anchorages
along the west coast
of the Baja
Penninsula south of Ensenada and there is a long history
of October hurricanes and tropical storms along the Baja west coast
I was doing a delivery
of a 65' sailboat from Seattle
to St Croix a few years ago. Got to San Diego
in early October and the owner insisted on pushing on despite many warnings. I refused to continue as captain
and left the boat in San Diego.
The boat suffered serious damage when hit by a hurricane the third week of October between Cabo San Lucas and Manzanillo.
