how far are you straying away from land?

once i get some sailing hours under my belt i plan on making a trip to the gulf in the winter for some sailing around the keys islands to escape what we call winter in the caolinas.

I plan on sailing from morning to about noon. After that stop at the nearest island for camp the rest of the day. Only spending nights/ morning hours in the boat will be much easier on everyone. The dogs will also appreciate the time out to run and stretch. I won't ever be leaving the site of land so stopping points for me will not be much of an issue. I'll also hopefully avoid all the afternoon thunderstorms.

If me, my 2 kids and wife were all stuck on our venture 21 for a week solid....there would be a fight!
