This is the official homepage for the annual Pacific Puddle Jump rally. It is not to be confused with the PPJ group hosted by Yahoo. Although that group is not directly affiliated with Latitude 38 or this site, the group members share useful tips and info about Puddle Jump-related topics. All would-be South Pacific cruisers are welcome to join it.
