Mexico Cruising Memories Still Being Made

Tim Dick of the Lagoon 42 Malolo, who sailed in last fall’s Baja Ha-Ha, wrote in to send a few favorite photos of the trip south.

Swimming of the Malolo
Mutiny on the Malolo? The crew abandoned ship for a brief swim on the way south.

Calm anchorage
It was a light-air year, but, as always, well worth the sail.

As Tim explained, “It was a weird year. Zero wind from San Francisco to San Diego, followed by zero wind on the Ha-ha until the last 75 miles, when we had a lovely, 12-knot0 reach. (That’s when the spinnaker shot was taken.) Malolo is presently in Puerto Vallarta and will be headed up to La Paz / Sea of Cortez at the end of April.”

The Sea of Cortez is warming up, and we’ll be looking forward to some more photos of future memories.

Offshore Yacht Racing
Of the 31 boats entered, 24 completed the 800-mile race. The Swan 60 Good Call! made a good call to hunt for some breeze offshore. The move paid off.
Circumnavigators
We got the following email from Randall Reeves not long after we posted ‘Lectronic on Wednesday:  Well, Mo is around and has passed for the second time this passage under Cape Horn, thus completing her circuit of the Southern Ocean via the Capes, non-stop and solo.
Boat Show Raffle
You saw it here first. Jim DeWitt painted this original watercolor, titled Kids at Play, specifically for the cover of our April issue. You could take home the framed painting. We'll conduct a raffle, with the proceeds benefitting Bay Area youth sailing programs.
