Upon reaching Mazatlan, I knew I had to find another boat heading South because Ian was going to stick around for awhile. This process gives me a lot of anxiety. I’m still shy, no matter how hard I try to push myself out of my comfort zone with this! Making myself comfortable and thus helpful on a new boat is a process that takes some time. Not to mention, that, people change out at sea (myself included, I tend to get very quiet) Finding a safe situation and one that I can thrive in, seems like a lot to figure out in only knowing
someone for a short amount of time. I was excited to see Eric on a Catamaran named Capricorn Cat. I had seen Eric during the bajahaha (Haha ). Being in a new and strange place and seeing a familiar face is soo nice. I think that is a wonderful thing about the Haha. You make a lot of connections with people whom you see all the way down the coast of Mexico and even if you don’t recognize them (there are a TON of people who do the haha) its an automatic connection you share if you both did the haha.
Eric mentioned to Wayne and Carol (owners of Capricorn Cat) that I seem like a good crew mate. They invited me out to breakfast that morning to “see”. At the end of breakfast, they invited me aboard! And little did I know, all the adventure and fun I was in for! Omigosh!
