Against the wind, again



It is said that a gentleman does not sail against the wind. Sadly, I am no gentleman. We pounded against the wind from Wiggins Pass most of the day until Gordon's Pass. Gordon's Pass is the entrance from the Gulf to Naples. However, instead of going up the channel to Naples, we turned south on the old ICW. Now we sit at anchor just north of Marco Island. It was a long long day.

The plan is resupply at Marco Island as it's the last real full service town before crossing Florida Bay.

  1. Freezing rain here tonight, wind from the east (never good) and it's howling across my bedroom window. Hope the power stays on. Be glad you're in Florida.

  2. Keep on enjoying the sailing, it is way too cold to go home.

    1. It's true what they say about life on the water. The lows are lower but the highs are higher. As long as the highs outnumber the lows, it's good.
