Important Update on 2020 Baja Ha-Ha Cruisers’ Rally

We’ve just received an update about this year’s Baja Ha-Ha: 

The Grand Poobah advises that on October 1 he will make a final decision whether to host a Baja Ha-Ha 27 this year. The event is slated to start November 3.

The Ha-Ha, of course, is the 750-mile cruisers’ rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas with R&R stops at Turtle Bay and Bahia Santa Maria. Over 10,000 sailors have done a Ha-Ha.

The Poobah wishes he could provide more certainty, but as we all know, it’s just not possible at this time.

Even if making an October 1 decision on the Ha-Ha, the Poobah is confident the Ha-Ha and partners could provide an almost-normal Ha-Ha experience.

Keep your fingers crossed. After doing it for 26 years in a row we sure don’t want to stop now.

The Grand Poobah has announced that there will not be a SoCal Ta-Ta this year because of the COVID-19 crisis. The Ta-Ta is a week-long cruiser event that starts in Santa Barbara and finishes at Two Harbors, Catalina. In between there are two overnights at Santa Cruz Island, and overnights in Channel Islands Harbor and Paradise Cove.

The Grand Poobah intends there to be a Ta-Ta in 2021.

    The big question is, will there be beer for sale in Mexico.

    Checking to see if Richard needs any crew (paying or otherwise) for Profligate for the 2020 HaHa if it happens. I sailed the 2016 HaHA on our Hunter 44 SeaOz, have a 100T USCG license, USS, and ASA certified instructor. We have met several times, but Poobah may not remember from the masses. Thanks, Bruce Osmun
