My idea of a long distance cruise.. is enough clothes for a week, my broken down bicycle, food, water, and safety gear. My goal is to sail from Atlantic City to Florida putting into a port every evening (even if just a sheltered place to drop anchor
) and out every sunrise.
It's just me as my G/F idea of "roughing it" is an econolodge (this idea may put paid to this relationship)
So. now that I know what to expect, I can plan accordingly. Friend of mine thought she would be a 3 knot boat.. so that seems about right.
