Re: sailing as i write

Tried to post this before but it seemed to get lost; Sailnet was down late this morning (EDT?) Anyway: The direction of the current in the ICW could be fair or foul for each segment of your trip depending on how close you are to the inlet. If the tide is (for example) ebbing, the water will be rushing toward the nearest cut or inlet. As you proceed, the current will be fair till you get alongside that inlet, then foul as you motor or sail parallel to the shore away from that inlet and stay foul until you get to the divide where the water goes toward the next inlet in line, when your current will be fair again. If you compare your GPS speed over ground to your knotmeter speed through the water, you will know if it is fair or foul. Or look at a passing piling or daymark: water piles up on the side facing the current and there is a small slick behind on the downcurrent side.

Re: sailing as i write

Today has been a great day. I left at 839tide and the san paublo was easily tamed. Rode the current down to spanish landing averaging 4 to 4.5. Hit a thunderstorm with some big gust. Tried to put my nose on the shore. Had to 75%you power to nose up and bust thorugh. Now im passing red 36 9 miles out of st augastine and the tide is going out so im avg 4 mph eight now. Have a slip reserved at comanchee cove to shower and enjoy some junk food out after all these salmon sandwishes. Tmmrw low tide is around 7630 which means i can leave at 8first and ride the town towards dayton. Sorry my phone is SO stupid. Anyway im hoping to reach daytona by end of travel tmmrw and finish up to nsb on sunday. So long as current favors me again tmmrw should be no issues until the approach to ponce where lots of shoaling is. Will keep you updated.

Re: sailing as i write

I'm so glad that things are going well for you.
I read thru the post & it put a small on my face.

Good luck with the rest of your trip!

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
