After a solid adventure on her from Kauai- Seattle in 2012, it's good to re-unite with David's Island Packet 380 "Champ" in Acapulco.
Less than a week after sailing Sirena Gorda into San Diego, I am in Acapulco, Mexico to deliver my friend David’s Island Packet 380 “Champ” from Acapulco to San Diego. So needless to say, it’s been a wild week! We were supposed to leave for Mexico on Monday night with a different crew member, but Category 3 Hurricane Raymond came within 100 miles of Acapulco on Monday, which delayed our departure and created a logistical challenge, so I was left scrambling last minute to find another crew. Boom, my good friend Walt stepped in. Walt is the guy who taught me to surf and my partner in the wounded veteran’s sailing clinics. Very excited to share this trip with him.
