We're up here San Diego amassing a pile of boat equipment, ready to head back down to Mexico in a couple of weeks. In the mean time I've been watching hurricane after hurricane spin up in southern Mexico and barrel northward, stopping 18 degrees north to make a hard left and die out in the Pacific.
The catch is that as the Sea of Cortez warms up, reaching over 90f in the peak of summer, cyclonic storms track directly in, or even hop over the Baja peninsula from the Pacific side.
One of our primary goals when we get back to Mexico is getting the f out of La Paz and putting ourselves in the more northern areas, at least with enough proximity to Puerto Escondido or Bahia de Los Angeles that if a cyclone is headed our way we'll have enough time to put ourselves in a relatively safe location and prepare.
Below is a YouTube video of Hurricane Marty hitting the very marina that Rebel Heart is sitting in now: Marina La Paz. I'll try our luck in a more protected bay with our own ground tackle, thank you very much. The camera work is shotty and the editing is circa 1966 but it captures a lot.
