|Hurricane BLANCA, the second hurricane this season (the earliest 2nd hurricane on record) is headed right for Cabo and La Paz. It is a major hurricane (winds >100 knots) but is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm when it hits later this weekend (but, models can be wrong).|
David is in La Paz, getting ready to load Pelagia on to a freighter Thursday at 5pm. This is cutting it close!
It wasn't supposed to be like this. Our contract with Sevenstar Yacht Shipping had us out of here in May, before the onset of hurricanes. Obviously, that didn't happen. (More on the whole shipping process in a later post, when all is complete.)
It's like Deja Vu all over again... waiting for and watching a hurricane head directly at Pelagia (as we did for Hurricane Vance last November in Mazatlan).
