Cruising Mexico’s Baja Peninsula and the Sea of Cortez

Date: Thursday, April 19, 2018

Time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Location: Craneway Seminar Pavilion

Cost: Free

Speaker: Pat and Carole McIntosh & Phil and Nora McCaleb

If you think you’d enjoy warm sailing in California’s cold winter months, this seminar will ensure you get the most out of your trip south of the border. The seminar has information for sailors who plan to either do extended cruising or “commuter cruising.” The McIntoshes and McCalebs are active sailors who have visited practically every cove, bay and marina in the region. They have navigated the Baja’s coastal waters, the Sea of Cortez, the airports, and even the Mexican roads many times. The seminar covers the outside of the Baja, the Sea of Cortez, Mazatlan, and the area south to San Blass and Isla Isabella. If you’re looking for first-hand information about where to go, and where not to go, where to find boat-parts, do your provisioning, get the laundry done, find a good mechanic, or find a great out-of-the-way anchorage, this is the seminar for you.

The McCalebs and the McIntoshes have conducted cruising seminars together for several years. They have helped thousands of other sailors prepare for cruising. Attendees at this seminar will be given a copy of their newest book, CRUISING NOTES – Underway to Mexico.
