Easter: Who is going where?

Big four day weekend here. Time to pack the boat and sail off. Where are you going?

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217

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.

We're planning to head over to Pirate's Cove.. and then to Keats Is in Howe Sound on Sunday for Easter dinner with friends.. Right now though, looking out the window I could be talked out of it.....

Actually tomorrow and Saturday might not be too bad..

I'll be heading out of Boot Key Harbor Saturday morning for Rodrigeuz Key, then on to Miami on Sunday. I'll wait out weather there, before heading north to Fort Pierce.

I've got to make my annual crawl back into the crypt to resurrect myself come Sunday.

There goes that pesky itch on my feet and palms again.

We're waiting for a weather window to sail from Brighton to Gosport. Today it's F7 growing to F9, (sea state moderate to severe) but hopefully it will calm down by Monday or Tuesday.

Our plan is to do a one day nine hour move from marina to marina, and then do some overnight trips in the Solent for the rest of the week, weather permitting.

If the seas flatten out some, plan to take a day trip on Sunday to Jost Van Dyke.
