Hello all. This is our introduction of what we are doing and where we are going. We are on our way to San Diego to join up with the 23rd Baja- Ha-Ha. This year they are expecting 150 boats, mostly sail, a few power. There is safety in sailing with a group though we will be spread over the Baja peninsula due to the different types and sizes. Ours is a 1975 Islander Freeport 41 Ketch, with a center cockpit. Very roomy and safe. Our crew will change for different legs. Traveling from Vallejo to San Diego will be Dennis Patterson the Skipper, Vickie Reed and Kevin Patterson. From San Diego to Cabo Kevin will be replaced by Mike Pienta, a friend of Dennis’s who bought a previous boat he had. MIke will then leave and Dennis and Vickie plan on cruising around the Sea of Cortez for about three weeks. After that Vickie’s cousin, Debbie, will join us for the up hill bash to San Diego. She has done the Baja Ha-Ha four times. Today was the day we left the Napa Valley Marina for our trip. We had an appointment in Vallejo to have the boat hauled out and a re-tuned propeller put on and a new transducer installed. This was to take about four hours. But when we arrived and went over the work order with the owner he said the adhesive, for the transducer, has to cure over night. So we are now sitting in the boat, on the hard, in a boat yard, in Vallejo. Tomorrow we will start our first leg to Half Moon Bay. We are expecting our trip to last two months. More to Come… We hope you enjoy our travel log.
