Windy and wild

We have gone about 160 miles in 30 hrs. Great time. The wind is blowing between 20 and 25 and we are sailing with just the Main alone doing about 7knts. Tried to run the Jib too but the wind wouldn't fill it with such lumpy seas. Looks like we might make it there tomorrow afternoon, but the wind is suppose to let up a bit tonight and tomorrow. We actually hit 11 knots with both sails up before if wouldn't hold it shape. The ocean is now a very dark shade of aqua I will try to fish soon. Yellow tail have been caught in the fleet.
Make sure you check out yotrips too. This is our location


On your way

Well, it sure sounds like fun to me!  Have a great time!  I will enjoy following your trip.  Were you glad to get out of the smoke or are you still affected by it?


Happy Sails To You!

We are on our way

We are in Mexico, we are about 40 miles south of San Diego and the wind has died. We are motoring about 5.5 knots with about twenty boats within 3 miles of us. Have to keep a good watch tonight. We started out with 15 to 19 knots for about 3 hrs it was great. We the wind died to 11 knots we put up the new spinnaker. Totally cool!! Not much else it should take us about 2 1/2 days to get to Turtle Bay, if all goes well. I will update more tomorrow.

Sat. October 27 2007

Time is counting down. I am trying to update my new Blog using my Ham radio. Hope it works. We are still in smoky San Diego waiting to take off on Monday. So far we have meet many of the Ha-Ha'ers and they are a great group of travelers. When we leave on the Baja Ha Ha on Monday there will be 178 boats and about 600+ people. Should be quite a sight. We are also the proud owners of a rainbow colored spinnaker. We bought it at a swap meet from a couple who have their boat in Ecuador, and just didn't need one so big. I am so excited!!! Helen arrived two days ago and is enjoying the weather, but has not been able to enjoy island time as yet.
I will update as we go down the coast.

It's 80+ degrees here

Sorry about that, but it is 80 something degrees here. Very light wind. It is actually 93 right now in the cockpit. I think I can get used to this. This morning when it was just 65 in the cockpit I had my fleece boots and fleece coat on, I must be adjusting rather well. I am looking forward to Helen's arrival on Wednesday and the weather should hold.

Oct 20 2007 Sitting in San Diego

We are currently sitting at the police moorage in San Diego. We lucked out and got a slip. We are able to stay here ten days so we took advantage of it. We won't have to move until we leave for Mexico on the 29th.
