Second Annual Seawind Baja Rally

Seawind Baja Rally 2010 IMG 8335

The sunset colors are starting to shine as the beach campfire glows hot enough for roasting our hot dogs. We’ve been sailing together for the past 4 days, anchoring in one beautiful location after another. Some of us are old friends and some new. It’s great how sailing together in the first Seawind Rally has formed great bonds. Tomorrow we sail to Loreto Fest ending the rally. Campfire talk babal is about how we need to do this again next year.

The Time Has Come !

 

We’re sailing north from Puerto Escondido to Santa Rosalia with a lay-over day in Bahia Conception and an excursion to Mulege. This is a good chance to sail together with friends and see the “middle sea” and her Baja destinations ending in historical Santa Rosalia. Remember, plans are weather permitting and we will only sail in safe conditions so keep your travel plans flexible.
