The annual Harker Board SUP day in La Paz was something we really wanted to do. Last year we stumbled on this fun event and formed a relay team of cruisers. Rob, Katie & Mike from SV Pangaea and Wendy from SV Willow made up the team and did admirably. In the all women short course later in the morning, Wendy went on to place first. Nicely done!

Saturday, our enthusiasm and team spirit was extra strong as we were paddling for Wendy, who is fighting her battle with cancer.
Wendy was not able to be here with us in La Paz this year, but her infectious spirit and optimism is felt everywhere by those know her. We've had some fabulous times together, in secluded anchorages, at "safety meetings" in the Marina, at endless music and birthday celebrations and out with the girls in La Paz for sushi.
Wendy, you are our Hero. We are sending your unique greeting and love back, with a Big "Hello Sunshine"!!
