Peralta Announces PWC Baja Rally 1000K for 2021


Recently, famed West Coast PWC event promoter Lou Peralta has honored by PWCOffshore.com as one of its first inductees into the group’s PWCOffshore Hall of Fame – most notably for his efforts relating to the annual Long Beach to Catalina offshore event, which concluded this year.

Peralta wowed followers on Facebook with a post last week announcing a new, far more grueling event: The Gran PWC Baja Rally. He writes:

“Lois and I have a meeting with the Secretary of Tourism for Baja California, next week in Tijuana. You won’t believe for what…It’s crazy (Lois says)…I know, but…wait for it…wait for it…We are coming back to Baja to do one event a year…absolutely, and truly an off-road event. Actually, really an off the road event. Are you ready?

“The PWC Baja Rally – Early 2021. A personal watercraft race from San Felipe to La Paz. A five (5) day, no holds barred, barn burner, hugging the entire coast line. We are putting an off-the-road highway right on the water (using GPS), with five day-stops, along the way! It is a world-class event, similar to a Baja 1000, and a Paris-to-Dakar endeavor.

“This will be the biggest water craft race ever and it will be in Baja like it should. First few years we will finish in La Paz, next maybe Cabo, and eventually the monster of all races: “The Gran Baja Rally – San Felipe to Ensenada – The Long Way!” (We need to do this for our good friend, Nico Saad, Mr. Ensenada, Mr. Baja himself.) More on this soon!”
