It’s time to go Sailing 2022
Let’s go sailing. It’s been TOO LONG. The last blog about upcoming cruises was “Sailing into a new decade” published in February 2020. Covid put sailing out of reach giving us a 2 year break. The good news we’re going to break out of our home port of Penasco to go hangout with friends out on the Sea. We’ll head for the Loreto area and attend the 12th annual Baja Rally. We’ve not missed a Rally yet and happy get to renew friendships and make new ones.
During the covid break there’s been big changes for Gato Loco. Co-owners Bill and Dave have decided to give up there ownership to the next generation for Cholla sailors. Before Gato Loco, us owners had a smaller sailing catamaran Dos Buenos, a 27’ Stiletto.
We passed Dos Buenos to fellow Cholla sailors Clyde Betts and Paul Littley. Clyde and Paul have moved up to be Gato Loco co-owners. Clyde brings his 2 sons Parker and Grayson along with sister Kim. Paul brings his wife Kate and son Jack. Here’s a huge welcome aboard to the new Gato Loco family. I’m excited to have 3 young boys to introduce to sailing.
Paul and Jack. Need a picture of Kate.
Sailing this spring will be a shorter season due to other activities. We’ll sail south to attend Baja Rally in Loreto and then back to Penasco with 3 legs. Crews are tentative and need to be firmed up soon.
Leg 1 April 25th – May 3rd Cruise to Loreto (Lowell, Murril, Rick, ?)
Leg 2 May 4th – 11th Baja Rally (Lowell, Clyde, ?)
Leg 3 May 12th – May 20th Cruise to Penasco (Lowell, Clyde, Heather,?)
Paul and Kate already had vacation plans this spring and can’t sail with us.
Gato Loco needs to be back in the May 20th timeframe. We recently found out that American Airlines now flies direct Phoenix to Loreto. This can help with crew changes.
We’ve been busy getting Gato Loco cruise ready and she’s looking good. We’re getting excited.
