Dale & Christina
Underway 11/01/12 @ 18:30 from PC to Ft. Myer's Beach, Fl. Rough coming out of the PC pass, where Skipper the cat threw up all over the setee, but was fine for the remainder of the trip. Motorsailed the entire 71 hours with moderate winds and average speed of 5 knots. Weather was perfect with seas moderate enough to enjoy several hot meals underway. Watches rotated effortlessly with us sleeping an average of 2 hours at a time at night and then swapping out.
Arrived at Ft. Myer's Beach @ 17:30 on 11/04/12, with 71 hours of continuous sail. Picked up a mooring ball and have been here ever since enjoying Ft. Myer's Beach, and awaiting a weather opportunity to head out to to the Keys for staging for Bimini. Weather is nice here but rough on the outside, so we will remain here and enjoy Ft. Myer's Beach until we can cross. This is a beautiful place to be sitting awaiting a weather window.
