Learning to Fly
I am Bek, a wanderer learning the ropes in the Sea of Cortez before refitting the boat for an ocean voyage. The boat is a Contessa 32 that lived in La Paz for decades under a caring captain until I fell in love with her and bought her. We (the yacht and I) are cruising the Sea of Cortez for the time being. Although the single-handing experience has been a rewarding one, I have enjoyed taking on crew and sharing the love of sailing with others.
My cruising style is a bit laid back. My time is divided between islands, anchorages and the port. Currently making expeditions out of Marina Puerto Escondido. At anchorages, I like to snorkel, spearfish for dinner, go for a hike, and read. I try not to miss a good windy day to go somewhere new. If I am at port with no wind, I try to cross the mountains over Baja and surf for a week or two on the Pacific side.
The next big item on the list is to cross the Pacific to the French Polynesia. I am hoping a potential crew and I will get to do some island hopping and cruising in Mexico before committing to a big voyage. This time will also be used for gradual upgrade of systems at various ports.
All costs and living on the boat is covered and I maybe able to help some with airfare.
