Re: Moving to St. Augustine

We have lived aboard with our home port in the Northeast Florida area since 1972. St. Augustine definitely has easy access to the ocean and some space for sailing north up the Tolomato River; however, the tidal currents are too strong to allow for rewarding recreational inland sailing. The Fish Island Marina & Anchorage Inn Marina as well as those up the San Sebastian River will have the best prices. Our favorite in the area for living aboard and quick access to anytime sailing is the Fleming Island Marina (formerly Whitney's Marina) in Orange Park, but it's a long trek to the ocean. Another selection would be a wise choice for hurricane protection if you would not want to move your boat for a tropical storm. Send me a PM if you would want a detailed comparison of more options in the NE Florida area. This is our "Briar Patch"!
