Re: Sailing South Florida with the teaching of the Shsmanic Wheel

I too would like to know where are good places to visit, on a trip south into the Keys. I imagine a Florida Keys Cruising Guide would be a good place to start. Frank Papy's "Cruising Guide to the Florida Keys" is supposed to be a good one. There is a video about the Florida Keys on YouTube featuring him.

Something you should remember is that you will be sailing east, when returning, so it will probably take longer to get back then to get to your destination in the Keys. I was surprised how long it took me to get from anchor in Biscayne Bay to where I keep my boats in Boca (about 24 hours of sailing). You need to sail to Key Largo and back, just to see what it's like and how long it takes. I don't think you can put a 4 day time limit on your sailing activities, if you plan to go far.

Good luck!
