Clockwise around the Gulf

We're a couple of schooner bums dragging the kids along on our adventure. Had enough of this muddy, shallow water. Nearing the Keys.
We're hoping to find more sailing kids so ours don't feel like an anomaly. They are doing pretty well for being stuffed onto a 36 footer (3 of them). We've been on this trip since July.

Re: Clockwise around the Gulf

Welcome to the forum. By Keys, I think you mean Florida. Hope you find more kids there.

We'll give that a shot. Meeting up with friends in Key Largo in July.
