Gato Loco Sailing – Loreto Fest 2005.

April 22nd – May 1st,   2005


Puerto Escondido’s beautiful anchorage (looking east).


Welcome Bob and Chris aboard Gato Loco for this year’s Loreto Fest cruise. This is not just another cruise, NO!! it’s Chris’s 50th birthday cruise. We get the pleasure of celebrating her Bday on our way to Puerto Escondido Loreto Fest (probably daily).

Trust me that laugh is contagious!

We fly to Hermosillo this Friday afternoon and spend the rest of Friday and Saturday sightseeing and provisioning. We hope to begin crossing of the Sea of Cortez for Mulege early Sunday, weather permitting. Starting from San Carlos makes this an easy trip with time to adventure around in our anchorages. We will spend Monday in Mulege and head to Conception Bay on Tuesday, timed perfectly to introduce Chris to Ray’s Beach Bar for her Bday.

We head south Wednesday for Loreto arriving in Puerto Escondido mid-day Thursday and fly back to Phoenix after weekend festivities. Gato Loco will be on the hook for a week in Escondido when Bill arrives with Carlton and Beth for their cruise back to San Carlos May 7th.

Expect email updates during the cruise and enjoy Beth's updates on the leg back to San Carlos. Send the crew emails to share in the cruise and keep Beth from going on strike again. 

Email replies will not be received. To send emails to Gato Loco
