In October-November, 2017 the Wild Blue cruised down the California and Mexican Coasts to La Paz, Mexico. This downwind-downswell run is, and was, quite enjoyable. Cruising up these Coasts, that is upwind and upwave, is less so. In fact this up coastwise route has been nicknamed the "Baja Bash". Regardless, what goes DOWN must come UP, one way or another!
In mid-May the Wild Blue was loaded aboard the AAL SINGAPORE cargo ship for delivery from La Paz, Mexico to Victoria, BC. More information and full Blog entry to follow.
