The Comforts of Home
06 April 2017 | St Lucie Inlet, Florida
As soon as our company left for the airport in George Town, we weighed anchor and headed north to Galliot Cut, where we spent a quiet night in the shelter of Galliot Cay. At dawn next morning we left with light southerly winds for the motorsail across the shallow banks, the deep Tongue of the Ocean, and finally the Gulf Stream, which pushed us across to the St. Lucie Inlet by sunrise, 48 hours later. We didn't dawdle due to a coming weather system with dreaded northerly winds. Halekai is now back in her slip and we're enjoying the comforts of home.
