Cruising sailors know that if you stay close to the water, you’ll regularly cross tacks in harbors anywhere in the world. So it was no surprise when we were standing at the Latitude 38 table at the Baja Ha-Ha kick-off party in San Diego that a woman came up and found her cover shot on our new backdrop. SeaJ Jones is pictured there on our July 2016 cover sailing aboard Dennis and John Peltso’s Chappelle gaff schooner Bluenose in that year’s Master Mariners Regatta.
SeaJ is sailing south on the Ha-Ha aboard Thomas Elliott’s 41-ft Beneteau Sol Searcher as another ocean explorer and committed ‘Kick Plastics’ campaigner for the oceans. SeaJ lives aboard her Catalina 27 in Channel Islands Harbor and is planning to head to Australia with the hopes of finding a ride in the Sydney Hobart.
We’ll have a story in the December issue about cruising the Ha-Ha with folks who are enjoying a sunny but perhaps slow sail south toward Turtle Bay in the currently light-air Baja Ha-Ha.
