My wife, and I have left Green Cove Springs, and had the anchor
down in 48 hours in Miami. We have also left St. Augustine, and had the anchor down in Miami in 36 hours. We like to leave the north on a good northern wind
. We keep a foot near the beach, and pass through the shoals at the Cape. At Palm we nearly have one hull
up on the beach. 1/4 mile makes a difference in current
from the Stream at times. Of course this is with winds averaging 30 knots. So we have the wind
gods in our favor!
We have made nearly as good a time coming north in very light winds, some motor
idling, and the stream dragging us along. We are just 2, and manage well. I don't know if she will need to return to work
from Miami, or if she can make the trip north with me? That's why I made need an extra set of hands.
