Mexico Fiesta & Seminar Esta Noche

At the risk of being annoying, let us remind all you would-be and soon-to-be southbound cruisers yet again that our annual Mexico-Only Crew List Party and Baja Ha-Ha Reunion takes place tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. at Alameda’s Encinal YC.

If you are a Ha-Ha skipper who is even remotely considering taking crew this year, we would strongly encourage you to attend. Having done many offshore trips ourselves, we’re big advocates of taking additional crew, as having an extra watch-stander or two along usually translates into a safer trip, with everyone getting a lot more sleep and having a lot more fun. There will be plenty of eager sailors on hand tonight to choose from. (Hint to potential crew members: Be proactive; don’t be shy about introducing yourself, and bring some simple sailing resumes to hand out.)

Note also that immediately before the party, Mexican marina managers Dick Markie and Geronimo Cevallos will hold a free cruising seminar, 4-6 p.m., that will cover a broad range of topics — excellent info, especially for first-timers. 

Again, no charge for the seminar. Entry to the party is free for registered 2014 captains and first mates. All others pay $7 cash at the door. Snacks will be provided, plus door prizes, and no-host bar. A variety of Baja Ha-Ha sponsors will be on-site to share their expertise and exhibit their wares. We hope to see you there.

All sorts of vessels transit the waters of San Francisco Bay, but none as unique as Russian gazillionaire Andrey Melnichenko’s 390-ft megayacht simply named A.
