I just purchased a 1981 orange 18SE and live down in Rosarito Baja CA and was wondering if anyone knows where is a good place to launch and sail and what time of year is good here vs. the sea of Cortez and is San felipe in sea of Cortez a good destination. Help! Help! Help! i am excited to sail but do not have a clue as to where. the boat is currently on the beach in la Mision which is right by la fonda but seems like there is not much wind there - always have a marine layer around those mountains.

South of Ensenada. Estero Beach or Campo La Jolla. Both great spots. Gotta pay to launch at both I think.

Anywhere right along the coast will be iffy depending on surf conditions. La Fonda seems to be in a protected area, by high mountains all around would limit the onshore wind.

San Felipe? Great sailing. We used to have a regatta at the end of February / early March there and it was great. Fall is good too, but not as windy.

ello Matt,

I broke the Rudder casting top tongue part last night coming in on the beach at la fonda without kicking up the rudders. it is a 1981. where can i find this part. it seems that it still locks down but it does not hold up as the tongue is missing now that it broke off. my email is zevbeckerman@gmail.com
any help would be appreciated. i called hobie and they do not have it
