SAN DIEGO — Revelers at the San Diego waterfront were treated, not tricked, to a large display of sailboats and cruisers as the 23rd annual Baja Ha-Ha rally kicked off Oct. 31. This year’s rally featured 136 boats and 535 sailors at the start for the multi-leg, San Diego Harbor-to-Cabo San Lucas cruise.
The field was later expanded when sailors joined the rally from Ensenada.
Vessels ranging from 27 to 92 feet in size spent most of the past two weeks sailing 750 miles downwind to Cabo San Lucas; cruisers sailed from San Diego to Bahia Tortugas as part of the rally’s first leg.
The Sportfishing Association of California spearheaded the Oct. 31 shotgun start.
