Welcome Happy 1. I wish you a fair and relatively non-eventful sail south. La Paz
is nice and a haven for cruisers, with activities centering on the Club Cruzeiros located in a hut at the Marina de La Paz. There are a number of informative threads here on CF of cruisers headed south from the PNW in previous years. As I remember, they have a lot of discussion of 'weather windows' for hopping down the coast. And many discussions of single-handed cruising. Do a search and if you can't find 'em, use the CF bat signal, and call out for GORD's advice, the man who can point you to any relevant info.
