2014 Cruise Plans Unfold
March 12 the count down starts
Life is very busy this year but our time on the Sea of Cortez is very special time not to be missed. It’s time to put things aside and focus on what we all love, adventuring on the Sea. We’ve got a special treat with co-owner Dave and Ellen on the 1st leg along with friends. We’ll be heading to Baja and then back to San Carlos on the first leg. Leg 2 we join friends Jim & Mary Ann and Dave & Kelley on trawler Grey Goose heading with us to Loreto Fest. Jeffery and Lynnie have signed on again this year on leg 2 giving us an experienced crew for the crossing back to Baja and on to Puerto Escondido’s Loreto Fest. Loreto Fest is always a fun gathering of sailors and a good place for Rally crews to meet before we head out together. Here’s info for this year’s Loreto Fest.
Seawind Rally Week
The Rally is really a Baja rally with many different boats these days. Of course there’s the Seawinds, but other sailboats and trawlers will join us. Ralph and Helen on Moon Drifter and Gato Loco are the anchor boats heading up the Rally every year. Kurt Jerman, our Seawind dealer, along with other multihull brands, joins us as our sponsor. Kurt will kick off the week with a dinner at Portabella’s Sunday night before we head out on Monday. Some of the Rally crews are hoping to slip away Sunday morning for a round of golf a Loreto Bay.. Let me know if you’re interested in playing. Above is this year’s t-shirt design. There will be regular t-shirts and I hope to be able to supply either short or long sleeve.
