Crewing for the Baja HaHa? (aka Haha Noob)

Hi there,

I'm been on here a bit, mostly lurking. My GF and I are hoping to crew on the Baja Haha this year, ideally all the way from SF to Cabo. We both have sailing experience and at least basic keelboat cert, and I've been racing on the bay for the last year on a Jeanneau 34'.

Long term (3-5 year) plan is to buy a cruiser though and try circumnavigating, so in the short run the HaHa looks like a great way to get experience with extended cruising under varied conditions and cultures. Not to mention a fun way to blow 3-4 weeks of vacation time.

The problem is that I've actually had a hard time finding a good place to search for boats / post availability specifically for the Haha. I've posted here: Couple looking to crew from SF in the Baja Haha as well as findacrew.net and sfsailing.com but responses have been erratic to non-existent.

I know Latitude 38 runs an annual crew list for the Haha but it seems like it doesn't come out till a month before the actual rally, and with our work schedules we'd really need to get something lined up well before then, hopefully in the next few weeks.

So does anyone know, am I missing some secret motherload of Baja Haha crewlist? I can't believe most people figure this out a few weeks ahead of time... Thanks!

My first thought is to take an ad out in the on-line electronic latitude that is delivered every day M-F. Might be a bit expensive but it is distributed to a huge number of people.
Good Luck

Thanks to all for the suggestions! It looks like Latitude got the crewlist up early this year. I'd provide a link but, apparently, I'm not cool enough yet.

Coolness takes time.

Just ask any of Bogie's exes..........

(BTW, I'm crewing on a friends boat this year. In case you care)
