Day 1 - All is well

Yesterday, March 21, we left San Jose del Cabo at 22:45 UTC, or 3:45 pm local time. We saw a couple of whales as we motored West towards Cabo San Lucas. Once around Cabo, we set sail during a beautiful sunset. It has been warm and sunny with fairly steady winds between 10-15 knots (for nonsailors, that is ideal). There are a number of freighters in the area, but none too close. In 24 hours we have sailed approximately 145 nautical miles with an average speed of 5.8 knots per hour and a maximum speed of 9.1 kth. Our current position: 22°05N 111°50W. We received a few emails, so our new satellite system is working!
