French Curve is finally taking a day to say Hello!
 
As many of you have asked, here are some of the sailing trek highlights thus far.  October 28 – 20th Annual Baja Ha Ha started!
 
The Baja Ha Ha rally was a success – French Curve won first place in her division and had a fun fast sail down to Cabo San Lucas.  162 boat participated in the 10 day rally.  Meeting lots of new friends along the way.  Crew Sandy & Chuck were excellent, a great sailing couple that Cheryl & Mark enjoyed sharing the first 2 weeks with.  They flew home back to work, after some fun times in Cabo.
 
Now French Curve is in LaPaz, taking appx a week to sail up the Sea of Cortez to the present, at Cortez Marina, near downtown.  The yacht will be here till the 3rd week of Dec. appx. & watching for a weather window to cross to Mazatlan.  There are many beautiful anchorages, looking forward to being back here in the Spring.  The winter will be spend exploring the Mainland, up & down the coast to as many beautiful places as time permits.  French Curve is open to sailing couples to do passages with, if you are interested send a sailing resume, with your experience and health status.
 
Mark is heading back to San Diego, for work Dec. 3-12, to pull 3 client permits &  met with other new potentials + a long list of To Dos.  The old phone numbers do not work down here, Mark’s work cellphone does (at times) 858 274 5978.  Wi-Fi / internet connections are NOT easy in Mexico, & rather sporadic if you can ever get on or through, so there may only be check ins 1x a month.  It’s costly to get connections and very time consuming, so French Curve may do a subscription Blog if anyone is interesting in “living vicariously”.  There are a lot of wonderful photos, to share.
 
A quick first month summary: it’s been Hot, lots of breezes help cool everyone down,  or most people just jump in to snorkel at anchorages.  The Mts. are rugged, green this year and gorgeous – you’ll see them in future paintings.  French Curve has been at 5 different anchorages, 3 marinas, which are more costly than the USA.  Tomorrow there are hopes of swimming/snorkeling with the Whalesharks, they are great creatures to experience.  Each AM there are Yoga classes, & lots of walking daily.  Like the adventures of getting groceries, laundry, boat items, etc.  Mexico is surprisingly expensive, not like the Mexico of years past & travels. It is definitely still 3rd world, and very interesting to explore.
 
Hope you are all Great!  + Enjoying the paradise you live in!  Happy Holidays to you!
 
As they say here “all plans are written in the sand at low tide”…
Wait for safe passages or speed up to get to a safe location before the heavy weather hits. 
Pray to the Wind Gods for guidance during travels. 
 
Written to you With Love, the Crew of “French Curve”
