November 9 - Pacific and Atlantic Oceans
Are any hurricanes going to affect the Ha-Ha? You can check
on the Mexico hurricane region at http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/e_pacific/2000/index.html.
All is quiet in the Atlantic/Caribbean hurricane region.

Looking for current as well as recent wind and sea readings from 17 buoys and stations between Pt. Arena and the Mexican border?

While the Baja Ha-Ha is underway, our cruising section will be on hiatus, but we'd still love to hear from you...so keep your pictures and stories coming!
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!
