A Virtual Ha-Ha Start

Even though the Baja Ha-Ha sign-up sheet has topped out at 196 entries, not everyone who wants to join the fun this year will be able to. "For those of us who won’t be in San Diego for the start of the Ha-Ha but still want to watch the parade," writes Pat and Carole McIntosh of the Alameda-based trawler Peregrine (they did the ’06 and ’08 Ha-Ha’s aboard their Hunter 430 Espiritu), "Google ‘live cam san diego‘ and you’ll get a ton of options, including live cams at Pt. Loma and Shelter Island."

So we did. The SunDiegoLive WebCam apparently doesn’t like our Macs, so we couldn’t confirm that would be a good view but this one located at One America Plaza should give a decent angle of the start of the parade. It won’t quite be as good as being there, but it might fuel your dreams for next year’s start!

While surfing the interweb looking for racing results recently, something on two yacht clubs’ websites caught our attention: offers of waived or discounted initiation fees for new members.
Cruising guide authors are a rare breed. Oh sure, it’s tough to feel too sorry for them — they get paid to go cruising, after all — but if you stop to think about all the work that goes into those books, not just the initial printing but the updating as well, you’ll realize that the authors are really paid a pittance for the valuable information they deliver.
Maybe it’s because we’ve been banging on the keyboard since before the sun came up, but we’re getting a little grumpy with cheap-shot artists who recently have been so quick to wrongly accuse Latitude of managing the news for the sake of money.
