Leaving Florida

The boat was ready to go at the end of November, and it was waiting at anchor at the end of Allan Lane.  Our destination is Cuba.  Tom lived there as a child when his father was stationed in Guantanamo Bay.  But before the weather improved, Tom developed an infection follwing his recent minor surgery. That led to a several month delay, but now we are in Fort Lauderdale and the weather looks good for sailing to Cuba this week.

We almost made it to Cuba, we were almost halfway there with an excellent weather window, BUT we developed a leak in our engine exhaust so we turned around.  Fort Lauderdale is the best place for boat repairs.  

Tonight, Wednesday March 16th, we are heading across the Gulf Stream.  We should arrive in Havana on Friday.  We'll miss St Pat's Day, but you can't have it all!

Next: Cuba!
Previous: Eau Gallie Yacht Club, Melbourne, FL
