Leaving San Diego

Cabrillo Isle Marina

This has been a busy week attending seminars and provisioning the boat. We have had very little time to ourselves or to sightsee. Make that NO time…

Today, we did have a little time to see Tom’s daughter, Jen and our grandkids Haley and Sidney. They drove into San Diego to visit and say goodbye. The girls are staying overnight to watch the Baja Ha-Ha Boat Parade, which is a pretty big deal here in San Diego. Officials from the US and Mexico start the Rally, Fireboats spray water and the media covers the event. 

So on Monday, 10-25-10, the crew of Camelot departs San Diego Bay for Mexico. This is Camelot’s first international journey and a giant step into fulltime cruising and the true start of our circumnavigation.

We will sail from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with stops along the Baja Coast in Bahia Tortugas (Turtle Bay) and Bahia Santa Maria. This will cover about 750 miles and take about 10 days with two-day layovers at each Bay. We anticipate arriving in Cabo San Lucas by Friday, November 5th.

In the meantime, we will be off the normal grid, but will check in on the Baja Radio Net and Sonrisa Radio Nets daily. Those of you close to us will receive radio emails with status reports from along the way.

The next time you hear from us, we should be veterans of the Baja Ha-Ha Sailing Rally and be drinking a coldy in Cabo San Lucas Mexico…. Or maybe  two…

Hasta la vista!



  1. What freq and time is the Sonrisa Radio Net on?

    Cheers, and we hope you are having fun here in Mexico!
