Sailing with Celestial's Tripp

We are a Tripp 47 racing boat turned cruiser that we bought in Maine in 2009. We sailed it through the Panama Canal and up to Seattle then back to Mexico and over to Hawaii in 2012.

Starting off from Ensenada

We had our awesome friend, Bill who commuted from Newport to Ensenada pick us up at the airport and drive us down to Ensenada.  He was the one Scott was going to sail to Hawaii with until plans were changed.

We took from 11/14  until 12/13  to get and put away provisions and do final upgrades for sailing. Scott worked on the boat June and July then flew home in August so the boat had sat since then so it needed some work. Scott had bought 160 feet of new chain and Celeste convinced Scott to install the new part to make our anchoring easier. Then when Scott tried to hoist the jib onto the head foil it jammed so that was a massive job.

Cruiseport was a great marina. Clean banos, laundry using US quarters (so plan to bring Some), lots of security and close to town. We got to watch the start of the Baja 1000, very exciting, then Revolution Day parade on 11/20. Ladies in full traditional dresses, men with fake  guns and ammo and every child a d most of the teachers were showing off each club and sport. Lots of fun. We did the tequila tasting, and caught a movie with English subtitles for $2.50. Friends took us to Costco and big supermarkets for provisioning.

 Had to show my Christmas display since the Groot was new from Celeste.

We had a great group of friends give us a send off and our next stop was San Qiutin, 124 mile sail.

About: On our first boat in 1977 Scott said, "One day I'd like to sail around the world." We did that from 1988 to 1996 on a J-36. Now we own our 4th boat, a Tripp 47 'Celestial' that we are retiring on.
We sailed from Maine in 2009 to Panama, up to Seattle, back down to Mexico and over to Hawaii in 2012. 2013 we went to NZ, Aust. and the South Pacific returning to Hawaii in 2015.
