Net Times to Note

If you’re heading south to the sunny latitudes of Mexico and are new to the cruising life you may not be aware of the cruiser nets that keep sailors updated on weather, local events and other topical news.

In San Diego, the local cruisers’ net is run by Downwind Marine on VHF Channel 68, daily 8:30-8:45 a.m.

The popular Sonrisa Net is found on SSB 3968 LSB at 7:00 a.m. daily.

The Chubasco Net has recently changed to SSB frequency 7288 LSB. The warm-up is at 7:45 a.m. daily, and at 8:10 a.m. you’ll hear a weather report for all of Western Mexico.
