Baja Ha Ha - Approaching the finish of Leg 3

0034 Local - Max and I are on watch together - we are sailing in 8-12 kts of wind after motoring most of the day and have just crossed the finish line of the last leg of the Baja Ha Ha. We have a few miles to go into Cabo San Lucas itself, where we will anchor for the rest of the night and move to the marina in the morning.

The highlight of today's passage was officially crossing over the Tropic of Cancer. We stopped the boat and took turns jumping into the water (we have all read stories of what can happen to sailing crews who all jump overboard at once!) Frank swam a lap the boat, and the rest of us stuck pretty close to the swim ladder. Even drifting, a big boat can move pretty fast when you are seven or nine! Victoria and Johnathan were amazed at how warm the water was, and how close the colour of our hull was to the water colour - beautiful and clear.

This will be the last of the daily updates for a few days, but watch for some photos of the Ha Ha when we get our Mexican internet access sorted out :)

All is well,
~Liz
