We the dock left Annapolis at 7:30 yesterday morning, and have been sailing continuously since. Strong west to northwest winds have been powering us along a lot faster that our usual average speeds, we are running pretty steady at 8 to 8.5 knots. We are staying near shore so even with 20 knot winds, the seas are pretty flat. We could push a bit faster, but this is comfortable.
Nothing exciting to report. No interesting wildlife sightings, and the weather, although breezy, has been quite clear.
It looks like we are on track for an arrival late Friday night in Fort Lauderdale. We are looking forward to warmer temperatures. Our windy weather is being driven by the cold front that passsed by Richard hours ago, and it is chilly!
