Fernandina Beach MM 716
16 November 2011 | Fernandina Beach, Fla
I only saved about 70 miles by gong outside. But it was a whole faster and easier. It would have taken close to five days of 60 mile days (no fun) and finding anchorages every night. With every day minding the sticks and traffic and bridges. So 27 hours at sea is not too bad.
I left Charleston SC at 7 am on Tuesday and put the anchor down in Fernandina Beach at around 9:30. It was a 179 nm trip with head winds and fog almost the entire way.
Tomorrow, I think St. Augustine, another 60 mile day.
