Captiva Island - Punta Gorda Isles

19 March 2017 | Punta Gorda Isles
Before we left for Punta Gorda (our final destination) we had a few days to enjoy Captiva. We kayaked to Blind Pass at the south end of Roosevelt Channel. We also got to eat lunch at the Green Flash Restaurant with our friend Mike Huffer.

Dredger working the Blind Pass Channel.

We left Roosevelt Channel early on Sunday morning just after sunrise for a 40nm journey. 8 hours. The first third found us motoring directly into the wind. We had been through this part so there was nothing new that we were concerned about. Traveling on Sunday was crowded. Some were considerate and others not as they passed. We like the considerate people!!

Once we got to marker 74 at Pelican Bay we turned towards Punta Gorda. The wind was up and on our port beam. Under one reef and 50% of the jib we moved along nicely at 6 knots. About half way we turned to a close port beat and dropped the centerboard. The boat performed well but we still had to tack TWICE (we think it's the only time we tacked the boat yet!) to make the mark into Ponce Inlet at Punta Gorda

By the time we got to Punta Gorda it was "Breezy", Florida's word for howling! We never negotiated the entrance to PGI before. The waves (slight chop! no) were 3-4' and foam streaks on the water. Meaning 20+ in Indiana. Life jackets on weather to go forward. All went well and we made through the pass safely and the hour run to the Buck's dock where we waited Charlie's family.

Here we are at Buck's dock. While we are here the Buck's are in the Bahamas at Bimini! Thank you Don and Gail for the use of the dock.

There was a strong crosswind at the slip, the neighbors came out and helped us dock thankfully as this was only the 2nd time we pulled in a slip in SIX weeks.

A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and space. The interior of a TARDIS is much larger than its exterior, which can blend in with its surroundings through the ship's chameleon circuit. TARDIS has just undergone a ten year restoration after [...]
