You will love that boat Mikey. It is perfect for Baja.

I was surprised how well it points. I am planning on going from BOLA to Mulege next November.

Post a trip report when you head out.

We doubled back from San Cosme and got picked up at Puerto Escondido by a friend with the trailer.

Fantastic trip for sure.

Loved your video. Brought me back to when I started cruising that area from San Carlos, Sonora in 1961 and took many more week long trips after that. Now have a place on Coyote Bay. It is as beautiful now as it was then, the remoteness makes it all possible. Thanks posting the video.

Hi Chuck. Great Video you guys. At young age of 73 bought my first boat, a Windrider 17. Brought it down 8mo ago as I’m building retirement casa near Todos Santos. My Mexican friend, Antonio, who also has a WR17 has been giving me sailing lessons in La Paz where I keep the boat pulled up on the beach at a tiny marina there for $80US a month. Plan on doing your trip this summer with Antonio. Thanks for posting. Mikey


Hola Mikey

Did you go on that trip? I am missing Baja this year due to Covid. Sure could use a Baja hit. Share a report of your adventures

I would like to thank Nomad “Howard” for helping us out in Loreto. I owe you Howard. Next time your on Vancouver Island, look me up.

Check out the video link below.

The campsite is really nice. There is an overhanging rock you can put your tent under. Good snorkeling on the reef in front of it.

There had been a recent tropical storm when we were on the water. We had to hold up in San Basillo for 4 days waiting out the rain and lightning. There may not be water in that pool unless it has rained recently. That fresh water swim sure felt good at the time. There was a lot of Bighorn Sheep sign in the arroyo but we never saw any.

I do not know the name of the drainage.
