“Sportsfishers Evacuate Families Due to Water and Food Shortages”
After Hurricane Odile ravaged the southern cape of the Baja Peninsular more than a few good guys and girls stepped up to the plate and came to the rescue.
With food and water running low in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo these Sports Fishers ran a mini mercy mission. Almost 60 Mexican Nationals between the ages of 3 and 65 were evacuated and safely brought to fabulous Mazatlan. Sinaloa. on the Mexican mainland
Captain Roy “Wilkes” Hammock of the 65’ Viking “Expedition” and his lovely lady Amanda were responsible for bringing over the Winkler-Romero family pictured safely secured to the dock in beautiful Marina Mazatlan.
Other folk and vessels who helped out where Ty and Krista Valli of the 68’ Hatteras “Reel Quest.”
To Quote Krista:
“It was not about paperwork or passports or where you were from….It was all about safety”
Further mention should go to Owner John Williams and Captain Kevin Pahl “Cubby” aboard “II Success” a 60’ Hatteras now safely moored in Marina Mazatlan licking her wounds with a couple of destroyed outriggers.
Fall is in the air and the heat of summer is quickly fading, but not the fishing. Mazatlan is hosting a Dorado Derby on 27th of September which will be a ton of fun, especially as we now have some real contenders to deal with!
Pictured here are Melissa and Erika at “Dock 7” Restaurant and Bar which promises to be “party central” for the Derby.
