15th Annual Baja Haha .. San Diego to Cabo San Lucas .. 150 boats .. a great and fun way for families/pirates and just salty hands to get in some sail time and find their way south.
I ‘hitchhiked’ – put my name as potential crew on Latitude 38s website .. and got a nice ride on Luna Sea .. a boat owned by Dave Boyles. Dave Hohman, Don Johnson, Katie & Matt rounded out the crew. Luna Sea is a Hardin Force 50 .. Built like a Formasa clipper with 2 masts and a full outfit of sails.
We started out in light winds .. which eventually crashed down to no winds.. Landed a tuna – 3 in fact the first afernoon. Sushi was abundant .. the only worry : would we have enough wasabi?
After two days of party in Bahia Tortuga, the fleet took off again .. this time with winds! Too fast to catch fish, but fun fun sailing. Past cruise ships and tankers in the dark of night .. and down to Santa Maria, for another two days of party, surfing, mountain climbing, beach walking and swimming.
Finally — south to Cabo .. and an end to a wonderful journey and experience.
