Downwind Marine Kick off Party Invite

Dear Panama Posse !

If any of your Rally participants are passing through San Diego in October 2017 - have them stop by our store near the harbor and/or attend any of our Fall Cruising Events - see attached.

We have a big Party planned for anyone cruising or interested in cruising - to be held Saturday, October 21 -
Find more info on our Cruising Season Kick-Off Party at our website:

It would be an honor to have the Pamana Posse represented at the party too!
Just let me know ahead of time if possible - but if not, any participant
for the Posse can just show up that day and we'll find room for them.

All the best from the Crew at Downwind Marine

Marina Chiapas update

There was a tsunami related to the September 7 8.1 magnitude earthquake. It lifted the floating docks free of the piling system and caused significant damage to the marina, however it is operating on a best efforts basis. None of the boats in the marina seem to have suffered any damage, and none of the cruisers or staff there were injured.
