Underway for Mexico

We hauled anchor in Radio Bay at 1615 yesterday, a little late in the day to be starting a passage but we just couldn't wait any longer.

Hilo gave a final send of, pelting us with a biblical downpour for 10 minutes as we exited the harbor. Also, the Big Island put on a Big Show for us with lightening and thunder to our south and about a dozen Humpback whales to give us a send off.

In the end we couldn't have asked for a better first night at sea with light winds shifting from South to South East and a beautiful starry sky after the clouds cleared away.
