The two have combined since the first boater put his first boat on water. Thirty three power boat Captains and their crews, left Long Beach on a cruise of dreams in mid-November, with the goal of cruising to La Paz Mexico. The thirty three vessels embarked on the 3rd Fubar (Fleet Underway to Baja Rally), a powerboat cruise down the coast of Baja. The goal: La Paz, Baja California Sur, stopping at several different Baja ports and anchorages while en route.
The boats left from Long Beach and several other ports on November 6, 2011 for the initial destination: Ensenada, Mexico. For some boats and their crews, it was the first time for a long distance trip. For several boats, the trip was the third Fubar, for all it was the culmination of a long preparation for the vessel and the crew.
The first Fubar trip was the brainchild of Bruce Kessler, who eight years ago implemented the planning of the Baja powerboat cruise down the Baja coast. With the backing of the Del Rey and San Diego Yacht Clubs, the cruise had 49 vessels participate. The boats and their crews came back from the cruise with raving reviews of the ports, anchorages and people they encountered. That enthusiasm led to the 2009 and the 2011 cruises. The goal was for a fleet of boats to venture south and, in a sense, have safety in numbers.
