Sailing Out of Burnt Store Marina

New to this forum. Have a Catalina 320 at Burnt Store Marina in Florida. Looking to sail to the Dry Tortugas in early December. Any recent experience appreciated!

Greg- sailed alot in that area. Recommend "Punta Gorda Sailing Links" to get you started. Lots of info concerning local gunkholing.

Fort Jefferson Trip

I used to sail there as crew from St. James City almost annually. We're plannning a trip this winter from Cape Coral. It might make sense to coordinate a bit. I'll keep you in mind. - Jim

Thanks Talbot, you got there first. I like all the info they have on anchorages along SW Florida. That and the weather info.
