Thursday Choctawhatchee Bay: Winds 10 to 15 gusting a bit more from the East, Starboard Tack out of Boggy Bayou at about 3 Kn, thru the Cut and fall over to a Port Tack and was off to the South East towards Destin. mild chop on the bay per NOAA, the Goal the Middle Bay Bridge about 3.5 miles away, 4 Hours later and having Crossed the Bay 3 and a half time the GPS had me at 17.3kn and a average speed of 4.1, top Speed of 5.4kn. Then sailed back up the bay to a local Marina and logged 24.5 Kn for the day.


This was a good after noon on the Bay, for me my first in a few ways; First time on the the Bay, First time on Salt water.
