Relative to the current discussion is how do they get back.

After the Baja Ha-Ha, most of the sailors who choose to return, endure the Baja Bash. Which I gather is patiently watching the weather for the best conditions, and then motorsailing north against wind and current. Going port to port.

If you google Baja Bash, you should find some first hand experiences. There is also a book about it available here:

Thanks Jim - most helpful - What you said about motorsailing against the wind and current - going port to port - confirms exactly what our other posts have had to say on the problem.

Also thanks for the the URLs - good stuff.
