April 12, Crossing

We left Mazatlan at 8am this morning, under cloudy skies with rain and about 15 knots of wind. It is 7pm and we are about 60 miles out from Mazatlan. Winds are good, but seas are lumpy. We have only had to motor 2 hours while the wind changed direction,and are currently sailing under main and genoa at 5 knots. 
Have had 2 sea turtle sightings, the water is amazingly blue, and we are about to watch the sun go down over the western horizon. 
We are barely within visual sight of 5 other boats making the crossing at the same time. All is well aboard, expected to arrive in Vahia Frailes at appx. 2pm.
See you on the other side.

PS. Todays edition was written by the first mate as the Captian is resting up for the evening watch. Enjoying my time aboard the Liahona. She is so beautiful and already she makes me feel like I'm home.
