Welcome to La Paz!

Guess what city in Baja is welcoming the Ha-Ha fleet once the event is over?

"On the evening of October 24, officials in La Paz unveiled the new ‘La Paz’ sign on the malecon," report Rob and Linda Jones, who left Puget Sound long ago aboard their Gemini 3000 catamaran. "We heard that it was made to be ready for the arrival of the Baja Ha-Ha boats."

What a nice thing for La Paz to do. Each year La Paz is the favored destination of members of the Ha-Ha fleet. We think it’s a smart idea to dash up there while the water is still warm. La Paz is a fun city that has everything, but, best of all, it’s only about 20 miles to the first of the gorgeous and unpopulated islands just to the north.

On November 22, 4-7 p.m. the La Paz Beach Party will take over La Costa Restaurant with Mexican folk dancing, live music, food and drinks, door prizes and more. The party’s free for the first 50 Baja Ha-Ha XXIII participants; everyone is welcome to join the fun.

Here comes the sun. . . One of the coolest things about sailing in the 750-mile Ha-Ha rally is experiencing little ‘gifts’ from Mother Nature, such as splendid sunrises and sunsets — not to mention night skies salted with a gazillion brilliant stars.  latitude/Andy
