August Meeting Speaker – Greg Himes & Jen Huszcza

Our speakers will be Greg Himes and Jen Huszcza. Greg is an ASA certified sailing instructor and USCG certified captain. He is a charter captain and sailing instructor at Blue Pacific Boating in Marina del Rey. He has done five Baja Ha-Has and has cruised in Mexico for nine seasons.

Jen Huszcza has been a member of WSA since 2010. She is also an ASA certified instructor and an avid racer. She is especially proud to be a part of the WSA LEMWOD team which came in third overall in 2015, two days before she left for the Baja Ha-Ha with Greg on Scout.

The Baja Ha-Ha is an annual cruiser’s rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas that has been happening for over twenty years. This October, the 23rd annual Baja Ha-Ha will take off with over a hundred boats on October 30th including at least two from WSA.

Greg and Jen will talk about all things Baja Ha Ha from prepping your boat and choosing your crew to parties in Cabo and Mexican beer. They will take you step-by-step down the coast of the Baja Peninsula on overnight passages with brilliant sunsets and sunrises while also talking about safety, provisioning, watch schedules, and boat handling. They will show slides and answer questions.
