Headed North...

Left Marathon Key, Florida March 3rd. The weather was windy as Hell, but moderated a bit later in the day, enough to run with a reefed main and full jib. It took 5 days to make it to Jupiter and into Manatee Pocket's Sailfish Marina, where I'll spend the night at the fuel dock. Photos will be forthcoming, and that full enclosure, well, it's fantastic. With just a single panel in place on the windward side the temperature rose dramatically, the cockpit got nice and comfy and that was with 45 MPH winds and 48 degree temperatures.

More to come,

Gary
