Grand Poobah Richard Spindler wrote to announce the opening of the 2021 Baja Ha-Ha:
Why sign-up right away? The earlier you sign up, the higher you are on the list to get a berth in Cabo San Lucas at the end of the Ha-Ha.It may not seem like a big deal now, but for a lot of folks getting a berth after nine days ‘out there’ is an attractive proposition. Particularly for women.
The Ha-Ha, as you probably know, is the 750-mile cruisers’ rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas that will start on November 1. Since it is a cruisers’ rally, participants can use their engine whenever they want, be it for safety or convenience. There are R&R stops along the way at Turtle Bay and Bahia Santa Maria, as well as social events before, during and after the fleet reaches Cabo. Boats must be 27 feet or longer and have been designed, built and maintained for offshore sailing. There must be at least two crew. There are daily roll calls and weather forecasts.
The 63-ft catamaran Profligate will be the mothership for the 24th year. Collectively here crew will have done the coast of Baja over 150 times. For the Notice of Rally, further details, and to sign-up, visit www.baja-haha.com.
Over 10,000 sailors have done the Ha-Ha, and speaking as the Grand Poobah of the 26 previous Ha-Ha’s, I hope you’ll join us.
