The Skipper
Greetings When most people hear of the Baja Ha Ha the think of a non stop party. Well, lets say it is 7 hard days of sailing with two party events. But they are great parties! Today we took a ponga ashore. For those that don't know what a ponga is, it is a very light fiberglass 15 foot boat that the locals strap a 115 HP engine to and it goes at least 50 MPH. Anyway, after an exciting ride to the beach we found our way to the beer line and then to the food line. The beer was cold and the food was hot. We had a fishermans stew with shrimp, fish, veggies, rice and lots of hot sause. It is a pretty incredable meal considering that the people serving it made it 70 miles away in the closest town and drove all night to get it here. Bahia Santa Marie is a very isolated place. We even had a live band that used a generator to power the sound system. We met a lot of nice people that had lived through the same seas and weather that we made it through. They was an instant bond. Tomorrow we leave at 7am and will arrive in Cabo the day after tomorrow. It's only a 36 hour sail. I now that sounds like a long time but it's short comparied to the last 2 legs. So heres to smooth seas and following winds, at least for the next two days. The Skipper
