Hi Allan. We did the Ha ha last year and had an absolute blast, so we decided to do it again this year as our family cruise kick off with our two kids.

We will be heading to La Paz after the "circus in Cabo" (you will see what I mean) and then onto the Mexican mainland also.

We will keep an eye out for you guys.

Regards

What an honor..... received this at work for heading off on sabbatical for a year..... Very appreciative for the way Encover has handled my leave. Very much looking forward to returning with batteries freshly charged.

Also joining us are Corey Wurzner and Bernice Hanczak, friends from high school. Corey and Bernice are long time sailors and proud owners of a new (to them) Pearson 32 "Blue Express" located in Moss Landing.

Flights are booked to San Diego for October and crew training cruises taking place.... pretty fun stuff.

Bro Phil and wife Josie will be joining Rina and I on the Haha this year. Phil has sailed casually, crewing on friends boats and spent plenty of time on Follow You Follow Me. Quite impressively, Josie took basic keelboat at Tradewinds in March and passed with flying colors! She knows knots and everything!

I did it!

Big step.... let work know that Rina and I are going sailing to Mexico for a year. CEO was very amenable, giving me a leave of absence for the period. Even discussed the possibility of doing small projects for the company... that would be cool, and the holy grail of the cruising life.... work via the satellite phone and wifi while living on the boat....

Now that the cats out of the bag, Rina and i will discuss itineraries and other stuff that we couldnt before...

I want to be more like this..... RELAXED and on the boat.... and less like.....
