Sailing Longboats in Mexico's Sea of Cortez - Alumni

Sail aboard unique 22-foot Drascombe Longboats, which are versatile, open cockpit centerboard boats that sail well in a variety of conditions. These boats are a great avenue for learning the elements of sailing and seamanship. This trip camps on and explores Baja’s remote desert beaches.

This expedition travels with the rhythms of the natural world. Our schedule is dictated by the current wind patterns and sea state. We may rise bright and early to take advantage of a small weather window or we may sail late until dusk to take advantage of a favorable breeze. Some days we will make a passage to a new anchorage while other days may include a layover and skill building while day sailing. We will also seek opportunities to snorkel, fish, hike, and explore tide pools.
