BAJA HA-HA MELTING POT If you’re new to the event, let us explain that the Ha-Ha is a 750-mile cruisers’ rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, with stops along the way at Turtle Bay and Bahia Santa Maria. Check out the Ha-Ha XXII entry roster at www.baja-haha.com and you'll see that boat types and sizes in this year’s fleet were as varied as ever, and the crews who sail them were as colorful as in years past. In addition to many first-timers, there were plenty of ‘repeat offenders’ who wanted to replay some of the fun and great sailing that they'd experienced during previous rallies. Some full-time Mexico cruisers even sailed all the way back to San Diego this year just to re-do the rally. On page 68 of this issue, you'll find a complete recap of this year's event. And you can find mini-profiles of all crews online in the archived November 2015 issue at: www.latitude38.com.
