Ready To Rumble

07 January 2008 | Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Andrew
We had a great shakedown cruise from La Paz, and made Cabo San Lucas by 3 pm today. The weather was clear and warm which was a nice way to ease our way back into things. Things will be quite different on the outside as the wind will be on our nose and the temperatures will be much cooler. Additionally, the crisp seawater will inevitably make its way over the decks of Cisnecito which is sometimes fun, if you duck in time. We have a small dodger over the companionway which keeps the watchman dry. However, if you peek your head over the dodger timing comes into play in a big way. Taking a nice big cold wave on the face isn't the most fun thing to part of. Especially if you wear glasses, which of course, I do.

We are anchored just off the beach where all the hotels and fun is. Unfortunately I won't be taking upside down tequila shots at the 'Gigglin' Marlin", stopping at "The Office", or checking out "Cabo Wabo" tonight. I like to think I got that out of my system on my last trip to Cabo San Lucas, which was a real hoot, however long ago it was. In fact, Cisnecito is anchored just in front of the where we stayed, which is funny to see. This time around, it is quite different, in more ways than one.

We are scheduled to leave at 5 am tomorrow morning and round Cabo Falso at first light. This particular section can be somewhat hairy, so I am prepared for the worst, yet hoping for the best. Currently the swell is rolling down at 10-15 feet with Northwest winds at 15-25 knots. So yes, I am ready to rumble and begin the Baja bash!
