Time to travel

Hopefully we're going to leave Marathon, Fl. on Tuesday the 18th of May. Have to get up the coast for insurance reasons but need to move on anyway. We could easily get "stuck" here in Marathon like so many others. It is really nice and cozy here. Our next planned stop is St. Augustine, Fl. We really like it there and want to visit all the historic sites in the area. I would like to try to go a non-stop sail to there up the Gulf Stream but it's 384nm and I'm not sure we are up for that much time off shore. We'll see how that goes. We won't be so far out that we can't duck in if need be. We probably will never get quite far enough out to loose sight of land. That's always comforting. If that works out good then we will be more prepared to make another big jump up to Charleston, NC. We'll then try doing some ICW travel, doing day trips for a while anyways. We might end up staying in the Charleston area for a week or more, hard to tell. I'll post an update when we get to St. Augustine.

  1. Hey There Sailors,

    Looks like we'll leapfrog again! Lynn and I are anchored at the Saint Marys River at the Florida/Georgia border so let us know when you're in the neighborhood.

    We had a great time over in the Bahamas but... ran into some major engine trouble (I suppose it was no big surprise!). We brought her back to where we are now under sail and luckily the weather cooperated! We're off to Ecuador on June 9th! Lynn's pregnant-belly is impressive at this point!

    All the best to you 3,

    Tom and Lynn
