VOC Talk: Adventures in Cruising – The Baja Haha Along the Mexican Coast

Ever dreamed of sailing somewhere warm, with stopovers to explore the land, relaxing and exciting?

Andrew did just that last summer – sailing from California down to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.
On Jan 31st, Andrew is giving a talk at VOC (Varsity Outdoor Club) about his journey sailing down the Baja Peninsula with his friend Ed, his fiance, and their new boat Tioga (Fast Passage 39).
Stories about sailing, hiking, flipping rocks, good times with friends and fish to be had at this slideshow.

The Baja haha is a “cruisers rally” allowing for boats to safely move as a pack along the coast of Mexico from San Diego California down to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

More details to be found here:
