12/17/2011 – On our way

We got underway from the marina precisely at 10 AM. It's now 7:45 PM. No wind all day but the seas are nice and flat so it seems a fair trade-off. So far we've averaged about 4.5 knots with the mainsail hoisted and the engine running. We've passed Cerralvo Island so there should be no more course changes until we arrive at Mazatlán. Not much to do on watch except read, fill in the log every hour and look around occasionally. We're doing 3-hour watches and I'm taking the first one: 2000-2300. Lulu's been trying Stugeron for seasick prevention. It seems to be keeping any queasiness at bay but she's been sleeping all day because that's one of the side effects. She gets slammed by side effects and I seem to just skate by unscathed. Go figure.

Anyway, we're on our way. I'll post this later but I wanted to write something now since I want to include a position report anyway.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
