Mike...I am a fan of the C30 and think they ae just a great boat for near coastal family cruising. I have NOT done the Baja...but it seems from what I've read that the return trip can be rather a tough uphill slog some years and is hard on boats and gear and crews. While my guess is that a Cat30 could do it, you also have a very young family aboard and so I will chime in with a warning that the C30 may be pushing its limits doing what you propose and that is not a good thing unless the crew is seasoned and adult and understands the risks.
