Southbound

Holy crapola.

The day is finally arriving. We are sitting in Tofino, British Columbia waiting for a weather window to head South to San Francisco.

4 years of work. 1 year of (almost) full time cruising.

We. Are. SOUTHBOUND!

Thanks to the people of CF for a lot of help during our preparations.

Thanks!

We are not planning to do the Baja Haha and we both dream of the S Pacific but are open to the idea of heading East or South instead. We'll make those decisions from Mexico.

The lovely thing about cruising is that planning usually turns out to be of little use.

Re: Southbound

Thanks everyone - we currently watching the NW winds fill in and considering our options.

@zeehag - I don't know where in Mexico but I've jotted down your location.
@rubyjean - we'll keep our eyes open for you. We're on SV Estrellita, Canadian flagged.
