Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Wimpy, Wimpy, Wimpy

So who's old enough to remember that commercial?
And what was it for?
I know, I know, I know!
So Julio wimped out and pretty much skirted La Paz.
We never saw any winds over 20 kts ~ which is a good thing!
We had rain, but never any outright downpours.
After all the preparations we almost wanted to see "something" ~ maybe a giant downpour for 10 minutes?
Anything to wash the dirt off of the deck ~ it just keeps dripping down from the rigging and makes mud puddles all over...
It's cloudy today with Julio's leftovers and there is still a chance of rain.
I guess this was good practice in case we get a hurricane this year!

Good to hear yall dodged the Julio! We have storms popping up all over the place! Been rainy and cloudy the past 2 days from this new "Gustav"! Good thing I am blowing this joint in a week, the hurricane season is in full swing! Stay safe and keep those extra anchor lines handy!:)
