Two-plus weeks remaining of our first sailing season Punta Trinidad It's June 22nd and after a 43 nm day, we drop the hook in Punta Trinidad.

Puerto Don Juan Puerto Don Juan is one of the best natural harbors on the peninsula for vessels to hide from storms; or in our case during the pandemic, be pretty much by ourselves. Just 5-10 nm south of Bahia Los Angeles, this deep cove provides a breeze to keep you cool, warm water to … Continue reading Puerto Don Juan and Bahia de Los Ángeles
Santa Rosalia was a major stopping point for us as we made our way north up from the middle to the northern Sea of Cortez. Hm... How to best describe this from our point of view ... ?

The Latitude 38 host boat, Profiligate, is a big Ocean 60 Catamaran.

I don’t recall a whole to going … Continue reading San Diego to Bahia Tortugas: Leg One of the Ha-Ha
This is What Victory Looks Like …. Crossing the Border Sorry that picture is so blurry — as it doesn’t do the moment I was trying to capture justice.
