Southward!

Leaving the Chesapeake Bay, that’s Cape Henry Light. Our last close encounter with land for the next 4 or 5 days. We are on a fast reach with a strong current pushing us out, our speed offer ground is an impressive 10 to 12 knots. Winds are as forecast, 15 to 20 knots from the Northwest.

Several other boats have taken advantage of the favorable winds today to launch southward, it’s a crowd! With close to a dozen boats headed in the same direction, that makes a race! Not that we are competitive or anything…

We’ll be headed South-Southeast for the next 48 hours or so, crossing the Gulf Stream, then turning to the Southwest for a more or less straight run to the Florida Coast.
