Qualcomm / Globalstar Satellite Systems Baja Ha-Ha VII Update

November 9, 2000 - Cabo San Lucas

The race committee has arrived in Cabo and the fleet is trickling in, hitting the beach after a wakeful night sailing into a sea swell from the south, running before winds from the north. Next on the agenda are the beach party and awards ceremony, and we suspect that a few Ha-Ha'ers will be hitting Squid Roe and other favorite Cabo night spots as well!

This Baja Ha-Ha VII update has been brought to you via Qualcomm satellite phones and Globalstar satellite systems, the official communications system of the Ha-Ha. We've been using their products to make countless calls and send the photos you've seen here. It's worked great!
