Hippy...welcome. May I suggest you cross from west Palm Beach or further south rather than Stuart...you will have a much easier time with the Gulf Stream AND cruisers waiting for weather to cross.... anchor and wait in the NORTH end of LakeWorth so you can EASILY pick up travel companions there. Do a search on " Bahamas" or "Abacos" and you will find a wealth of suggestions on crossing and passagemaking to the Abacos.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Great Lakes to St. Augustine

I am planning on cruising my 39' sailboat down to Florida beginning June 2008. I have 8' draft so I'll be taking bluewater routes. I am looking for crew for the Great Lakes and Erie Canal legs and have a captain/wife pair for the NY to St. Augustine sail.

It would be nice to join a flotilla or have some contacts along the way. If your planning a like trip I would like to hear from you!

Flying into Tampa on Fri. Feb.15th. Taking a week for final prep on the boat. ("91" 43' Hunter Legend) Leaving Tampa on the 23rd and working our way around the Keys and up to West Palm Beach. Trying to be there by the 29th of Feb. After that we're taking the first window out to the Banks. Hope to see some of you out there. I'll keep you posted on our whereabouts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
