At the time of writing this update, The Grand Poobah was “tickled to report” that the 2021 Baja Ha-Ha had received 102 entries in the first six days — “the greatest number of boats in the shortest time in the rally’s 27-year history.” A quick look at the Ha-Ha entries page this morning showed us that the number is now 125!
Zak Crawford-Levi’s Marina del Rey-based Newport 41 Bambu was entry #100. Hey, Isn’t that a photo of Zak at the top of Bambu’s mast?
We’ve been getting a lot of great crew photos for the Meet the Fleet guide that will be handed out at the Kick-Off Party on October 31.
Have we got one from Diane Berol of her and her husband John’s San Diego-based Pacific Seacraft 42 Celtic Song? Sure have.
We knew that Kevin and Katie Millett of the Kalaheo, Kauai, custom 50 cat Kalewa would send a great photo because this is Kevin’s fourth Ha-Ha with Kalewa, and Katie’s second. They are the ones jumping up and down on the foredeck.
The Poobah has a special request. Whenever communicating with the Ha-Ha, always include your name, your boat name, and your entry number. And please, please, please, check the spelling on your entry form. It’s a nightmare for the Poobah to have to go back and make corrections.
If you do sign up, it may take a couple of days to appear on the Ha-Ha page because Patsy, the Assistant Poobah, processes all the entries, and she’s on Talion cruising the Sea of Cortez and not always in internet range. Thanks for understanding.
