I just heard from Patrick via cell phone. Our fast little boat is continuing to surprise us with its speed. Patrick reports they are nearing the cape of the Baja peninsula! Cabo tomorrow? They have passed numerous boats that are part of the Baja HaHa race, which started out further south and a little earlier than we did. As the name suggests, this is NOT a serious race. Most of the boats in the HaHa are mono-hulls which are generally slower than multi-hulls like our catamaran (which are lighter weight and have less keel). Multi-hulls also have a different action in waves - they bobble around less. Can you tell that I am already in love with my boat?
And now for the fishing report. Patrick says they have caught numerous dorado and tuna. One dorado measured 52"! As anyone who knows Patrick knows, he's having a great time. The water temperature is 85 degrees. The nighttime air temp is in the 80's. They continue to have following seas and fair winds and so they are having a great trip.
