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...

We Refuse to Get Our Asses Kicked by a "Norbert"

I stole that line from Kellie.
She doesn't know I stole it yet.

But look what is headed our way... A category 3 that is supposed to turn into a category 4.
Then downgrade to a 2 when it hits Baja.
We are hoping it stays to the North of us instead of hitting us directly.
The land between La Paz and the Todos Santos region does not have any mountains to slow or knock this thing down, so if it crosses to the South of the current "guess" we could get hit pretty hard.

"Meerkat" is sitting in the boatyard at the moment.
We may be able to be put back in the water on Friday.
But if we can't get into the inner harbor at Costa Baja, would we be safer just staying in the boatyard???
We are within 3" of the boat next to us and 2' of the one on the other side.

I guess we will just have to keep checking weather every 5 seconds every few hours.
