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...

Cruising Plans!


And all the rest of the words that show excitement.
We are actually going to GO CRUISING this season!

Our plans etched in wet sand during low tide are:
Alan and Susan of "Toshal" fly to La Paz on January 1.
First weather window we head out towards Muertos and cross the Sea of Cortez to Mazatlan.
Then Isla Isabella, San Blas, Mantanchen Bay, Chacala, Jaltembra, Punta de Mita and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle in Banderas Bay.
Alan and Susan will fly back to Alta California on February 3rd from Puerto Vallarta.
To work on their boat and get it ready for next summer ~ right Alan?

Then South to Ipala, Chamela, Tenacatita, Melaque, Barra de Navidad and possibly to Bahia Santiago.

Then back North again to La Paz.

Then in to the Sea of Cortez for a few months.

Then we have a few other ideas tucked away for future publishing...

You made my heart jump! I'm excited for you... this is going to be so fun. Would be more fun if I were the one planing the trip, but oh well. I'll just live through you.

So, we should plan to fly into PV around Feb 4th?

Ha ha Suzie! Of course. Or you might want to give me a week between guests. To give me ample time to wash the 10,000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, get the fresh flower arrangements from Holland put together and set up in your stateroom, order the Dom Perignon and caviar and get it all chilled to the proper temperature - you know all the stuff I do for my guests.

Hey, Great....Maybe we will see each other in La Cruz. Cap Cat will be staying the the Bay from now until the first week in March. As it stands right now...and you know how that is...we will haul for paint in Mazatlan. Are you still thinking of going up to So Cal in the Spring?
So cold here in Boulder Creek...snow! did you see the picts in my blog? AGH!!!!

Ahh, your cruising plans sound soo familiar, except for the back up to LaPaz part. Isn't it great to finally say out loud where you plan to go and when. That's when you actually have a good shot of the wet sand staying above tide level for awhile. But then again, changes are good, sometimes even better. A really big hello to the Toshals from us!

I think whomever gets to PV first on Feb 4 should get the stateroom!
