Re: Corpus Christie to The Bahamas!

Good luck to you guys. Just read your blog. You might want to re-evaluate anchoring out in the Gulf. If you can't get inside a harbor or inlet to anchor for the night you are probably better off harnessing in and sailing through with reduced sail. Consider 2-3 hour shifts over night, it really isn't bad with two and I have made the jumps you are now making single handed. It is tiring but the Gulf will beat you up pretty good at anchor, even when it starts out calm.

Glad you are safe and posting. You might consider pasting your blog posts here as well, there is a wealth of info on this site.

It's my happy pill
