We are off to Mexico this morning! Though Ensenada is only 60 miles south of San Diego, we are feeling very excited and celebratory as we cross our first international border. We are got of the dock around 6:15 am for the 10 hour cruise. The weather forecast is supposed to mild, as the storm coming through has blown over more quickly than originally predicted.
A quick note about connectivity: we were surprised at how little wifi access we had coming down the California coast, and I'm sure it will take at least a few days to get a data plan set up in Mexico. Maybe a miracle will occur and there will be open access wifi all around; but if that isn't the case, there's no need to worry if we are out of touch. We have just about every safety feature we can, including SSB and VHF radio, and they're expecting us at the marina in Ensenada. If you need to get ahold of us, feel free to email us individually, or using this address: sailinghelios at gmail dot com. Cheers!
