We went through Customs, crossing into Tijuana by foot, then picked up a taxi and drove straight to Ensenada. The taxi from the border to Ensenada was about $70.00 and took about 2 hours. The drive from Tijuana to Ensenada is soooooo easy. We soon arrived at the... Read More »

Baja Ha-Ha XXIV will be run on October 29-November 11, 2017 from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas Mexico. Here is a short report from Mark Pillsbury, Cruising World. Thanks Mark for sharing!

For the most part that was accurate, but as the hours rolled along here aboard Meriweather, and we ticked off the miles sailing... Read More »
