I got going just after sunrise today to finish the miles left from yesterday and hit the English Cove boat ramp.
I had a fast walk into the services area and picked up another sandwich for lunch. By the time I walked back and filled my water jugs I was ready for that refreshing cold water shower. Once everything was deposited, purchased, filled, washed and stowed it was time to shove off for Fort McRee.
It is certainly a treat to sail on days when the wind cooperates. Beam reach to dead downwind. Most of it around 4 knots boat speed, but as I got close to the pass the wind slowed and I was averaging closer to 2 knots, luckily my timing was good and only a mild current was flowing in the pass.
I had been to this spot before, once last year and a few days ago on a day cruise on Pat’s boat so the layout was familiar. You have to be careful running downwind into unknown harbors while under sail.
I put up my new window covers minus the front window, since the sun wasn’t hitting it and OMG, I could not believe how nice it was inside the boat when I got back. Cool enough to sit inside with the fan going on low speed. Best $30 upgrade ever!
