Marco to Ft. Myers Beach


Starting Mileage (This Trip): 535.1 NM


Checked budget, looked at charts for travel time, booked slip at Moss Marina on Estero (Ft. Myers Beach). Will be a full day’s run. But not as long as yesterday. And wind looks favorable.


[Motor]sailing “on our ear”…! Got a late start, but this breeze, plus the “iron Jenny,” equals making time!


Got a ping from a web client and had to whip out the laptop while underway…


Made it to Moss Marina just a coupla minutes before 5:00 p.m., promptly scared the bejeezus out of the catamaran in the next slip by insisting on backing in. Finally gave up and went bow in. #HowNotToSail

…and we’ll call that a wrap for today!

Ending Mileage (This Trip): 572.1 NM
