Lake Worth to Fort Pierce

18 April 2013 | Florida East Coast
Dean - Sunny - Warm - No Wind
Well...today turned out differently than expected.... we did go from Lake Worth to Fort Pierce... (actually we're still on our way, as I'm writing this while susan is at the helm....)...

I came down to check the packing (drip rate), and change the potable water filter... and do a "walk-about", checking engine, transmission, etc.... Packing is cool to the touch, and dripping at the proper rate.... all is well.

Anyway... we're on the inside today.... Unlike the Plans of last night...

It was so calm in the Lake Worth Anchorage.... I had to get up in the wee hours to make sure we were still floating... I mean it was really calm....

That extends until this morning.... when the forecasted winds did NOT arrive.... One thing we did NOT want is to be in the ocean with 4 foot seas, and no wind to fill the sails... for propulsion, and stability.... i.e. NOT a good ride!!!!
SO...we elected to do the 51 statute miles on the ICW.....

We traveled along with 4 other sailing vessels (one of them was QueeQuag (from Boot Key Harbor). Don't know if they're still with us or not... We passed them after the Hobe Sound bridge... we had sails out, and at Idle we were creeping up on them all the time...

We passed Peck Lake.... where it was pretty crowded....(as an anchorage, because there's only a narrow swath of deep water going away from the AICW toward the ocean....deep enough for AB anyway....

I thought that would be too close for comfort....

SO............................. by 1630 hours we should be near our anchorage for the night at Fort Pierce... We can dinghy in and go to the beach there tomorrow.... Then "mosey" up the 10 miles to VERO anytime.
