We're on our way!

The Baja-Haha started this morning at 11 AM off Pt. Loma in San Diego.

There were 167 boats that started with us.

The winds were very light in the morning - only 6 knots, but built to a maximum of 15 during the day.

We're on a beam reach and with our spinnaker, we were doing 8.2 knots, sustained with peaks speeds approaching 9! A really great day of sailing.

It's now 6:15 with a beautiful sunset and full moon tonight.

The winds have died, so we took the spinnaker down and are motoring - this is a fun rally after all and motoring is allowed ;-}

For more info, you can go to the Baja-Haha - see the link off our homepage at http://raptordance.com

Oh yea, we caught a 10 pound skip jack tuna right at 5pm. Fish for dinner tonight!

Cheers,
Bill
