After spending too much time in the heat humidity and bugs of Florida, we are ready to head north! We have almost everything stowed and shipshape. The boat’s new instrument suite is installed and working. All systems are “go”.
Which means… now we have to wait for a weather window to open for the five or six day run north to New Jersey. For the next few days there is a gale forming off the coast of Cape Hatteras. The idea of sailing north in the Gulf Stream with winds of 30 to 45 knots on the nose is, to put it mildly, unappealing. So we are going to sit here for a few days. Right now it looks like we might be underway Monday the 20th.
Hopefully, we get some local fishing in here in the meantime!
