There are dozens of reasons why sailors from all along the West Coast and beyond join the Baja Ha-Ha rally each year. But one of the most common motivators is to escape the arrival of winter. This year, as always, as fleet members moved south, they replaced the grey skies of the U.S. and Canada with brilliant blues above, and traded the chilly fall temperatures with ever-increasing warmth — culminating with air temps in the 90s and water temps in the 80s upon arrival at Cabo San Lucas
Now that the fleet has arrived at the Cape, there’s a celebratory mood among the 500+ participants. After a big night of unwinding at the famous Squid Roe dance bar, we’re presently gearing up for the annual Baja Beach Party at the Baja Cantina Beach Bar. So we’ll keep this report short and let the photos tell the story of the past two legs.
As a vocal advocate of teaching kids how to sail, Kame Richards, owner of Alameda’s Pineapple Sails, knows that many children aren’t able to take advantage of learn to sail programs, even if they’re free.
