"The Bash"
David
06 January 2011 | San Jose del Cabo to San Diego
The crew for the Sundance Baha Bash was David Rempel, Bob Woolf, Rich Seifert, Loree and Evan Koch. Left San Jose del Cabo December 31 at 5pm and arrived in San Diego 6 days later, Jan 6th at 5pm. Some bashfullness with 20-25 knt winds on the nose in first few days accompanied by seasickness, but overall, great weather. Ran out of fuel 3 knots from the entrance to Turtle Bay at 8pm, so tacked into the bay into a 1-3 knt headwind, arriving at 11pm and dropping anchor. New moon so stars were out in force. Jupiter and it's moons were visible at dusk to the west and Venus to the east in the morning. The last 2 days, the seas were flat with gentle rollers. We motored about 90% of the way. Visited by 2 schools of hundreds of dolphins who rode the bow wave. A grey or blue swam right under the boat then with us for a few seconds. Sailed toward whale tail sign for 5 minutes - tail sticking straight up and slapping on the water. When we got close, it dove. Loree and Evan swam after the boat with a tow. Great company and good food.
