Join the Tucson Sailing Club in beautiful San Carlos, Mexico to cruise in the Sea of Cortez!
Welcome to the 2019 TSC fall cruise from San Carlos to San Pedro Bay and points north
The 4 day, before the regatta, cruise will head north from San Carlos on Monday October 21st.
The distance to San Pedro Bay is 12 miles. There will be activities on the beach, games & pot luck dinners. If conditions are right, one of the days, there will also be a nature tour around San Pedro Island & back to San Pedro bay. The cruise will return to San Carlos on Thursday & Friday October 24 & 25 in time for the regatta. Activities and contests just like departure times are, as always, subject to the weather.
Sailboats make about 3.5 KTS in average conditions, always try to stay at or above this speed in a passage. Using the motor can increase this by about 1 knot.
Arriving at your destination in the dark is never a good idea. With this in mind, for slower boats, the best departure time from San Carlos is around 7AM, Monday. Winds tend to get stronger after 10Am.
We will monitor Ch 74 and switch to 14,18, 22, etc. for conversations.
There will be a pre cruise meeting at Tequila’s restaurant Saturday evening October 19th. Details of the trip will be discussed. The meeting will start at 6 PM, and dinner will be available.
