The total distance of this trek is 750 miles. The rally participants are allowed two stops. The first is at Turtle Bay also known as Bahia Tortuga. While the second stop is at Bahia Santa Maria. The event is timed so that even the slowest boats will get about a day and a half of rest at each stop.
One commonly asked question about Baha-Ha Ha XXVI Cruisers Rally: is why it is referred to as a rally, rather than a race. Although some boats invariably push hard to arrive earlier than others in their class, most participants are primarily looking for a safe and comfortable trip down the coast. Unlike a race, you can use your engine when you feel like it. You can also go what is called ‘off-piste’, as long as you inform the race committee. This means you are allowed to stop at whatever anchorages you like, leaving a little late or slightly early. The Ha-Ha organizers don’t see their role as making a lot of rules, but instead as overseeing everyone’s pleasure in a responsible manner.
There is no doubt about it, visiting Hacienda Encantada Resort and Residences in November can lead to plenty of fun. Whether just hanging around the resort itself or venturing out to Los Cabos and waiting for Baha-Ha Ha XXVI Cruisers Rally to arrive, there is no shortage of activities even this time of year.
