MORNING GREETS THE CAPTAIN
10 December 2015 | APPROACHING KEY WEST
DAY 10, FRIDAY APPROACHING KEY WEST
We have been heading west along the 700 mile north coast of Cuba. The Straits of Florida current runs strong, west to east and this choice of route had the least unfavorable current. At about 2/3 of the distance and still 120 miles from the Mariel Hemingway entrance for Havana, we turn away, to starboard and the outer sea buoy for Key West, 80 miles ahead.
After three years of his circumnavigation, thousands of miles and dozens of countries and ports, Capt Ken will soon be easing Moonbeam into the customs dock, handing in the paperwork, and officially clearing in, finally returning to the United States. He says, "the journey has been the joy".
