to the home page for the sailboat Gato Loco. Gato Loco is a Seawind 1000 33 foot
owned by a group of friends with our recreational homes
and Gato Loco’s homeport in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) Mexico. The partners
are Lowell & Frankie McCulley, Dave & Ellen Redden, Rick Quant
and Bill Hensler. We had been adventuring south in the Sea of Cortez for
years in smaller boats and in 2002 we decided to raise our sights on destinations
further south. With Gato Loco, we have conquered Baja by exploring the
entire Baja coast Pacific to Puerto Penasco in the Sea of Cortez. The Pacific
coast of mainland Mexico will also be in our sights as we hear of wonderful places to
spend winters with other sailing cruisers. We’ve got the boat and now
follow our life long motto: Big
name Gato Loco means "crazy cat" in Spanish and fits well with
the personality of the partners. The name has been an excellent choice
and always brings a smile to the local Mexicans when they hear it.
Gato Loco’s adventure started in Long Beach where she arrived
from Sydney Australia. Partners had a great time outfitting her for the
first big cruise while she sat in Ensenada Mexico May through October 2002.
At the end of October 2002 we sailed from San Diego to Cabo in a cruiser
rally called the “Baja Haha”, placing in second place in the multi-hull
division. That cruise officially started our Baja cruising adventures.
