Local Cholla Bay sailors Bill Hensler and Lowell & Frankie McCulley with golden retriever Neely organized an eight week Baja 09 cruise. Baja 09 is a 8 week sail south from Puerto Penasco to the Loreto area and then back. The cruise is organized in one week legs with different crews on each week. This allows lots of our Cholla friends to join us. This year we have some first timers which is always interesting. Crews post photo blogs of their cruise at It’s fun to follow their progress see what is posted. The Neely blogs are written from our golden retriever’s point of view by Frankie for her dog lovers.
