OMG I checked the NOAA weather forecast and yeech – a gale warning! Anchor pro is a great app. It keeps track of the boats position while at anchor and sounds the alarm if the boat goes outside of the set area. it keeps a history of what the boat’s been doing so you can… Continue reading Gale Warning
After sailing from Key Biscayne to Fort Lauderdale, I took the dinghy over to George English Park where I had my bicycle locked up. I rode to the store for a few things. I’ll spend the night here in Sunrise Bay this evening… and go back to my dock at Oakland Terrace in morning. The… Continue reading 7jan2021 Overnight in Fort Lauderdale
Even though the wind was directly from the south initially I had to jibe a few times so I couldn’t run parallel to shore to make the best time. Eventually the wind switched and I was able to travel almost straight north toward Fort Lauderdale without changing course.

On January 6th I motor-sailed from Lake Sylvia near Port Everglades (no bridges to contend with) in Fort Lauderdale past Port of Miami and anchored off Virginia Key and Key Biscayne.
Beautiful blue skies and puffy white (cumulus?) clouds, after a week cold front. I’m heading south from Lake Worth inlet toward Hillsboro Inlet in Pompano

I anchored off John D. MacArthur Park and was able to dingy over to the park and explore Munyon Island. I stayed overnight here Sunday night.
At times hitting 7.7 knots or more heading north from Pompano toward Palm Beach. The northward push of the Gulf Stream helps for sure. Woo-Hoo! Exhilarating maiden voyage, I got from Hillsboro Inlet to Lake Worth Inlet in about 4 hours using the foresail only. I’m glad I have roller furling for the jib so… Continue reading 3jan2021 Pompano to North Palm Beach
