IT WORKED November 22, 2010

Did not know if the mate would go for leaving Friday night with the tide. No problem. We got under way about 6:30 P.M. and motored over to Ft Pickens and anchored for the night. We ended up eating dinner about 8, which is late for the both of us, but we were out of the canal.

Saturday we ran the generator for about 2 hours in the morning. We had coffee out of the electric coffeemaker, hot water and 2 hours of good charging on the batteries with the AC charger. We did the same thing Sunday morning. 2 hours of charging does not keep up with the demand of a 24 hour period. While sailing, I use the chart plotter, auto pilot and on occasion will play with the radar. It still fascinates me on how the radar can compute CPA’s. I still remember maneuvering board paper.

Both days were great for sailing. Saturday the wind did die off in the afternoon. On Sunday, it held steady, though out of the east. We still sailed home making at about 20 tacks. My body feels it today. Saturday evening sunset was fantastic. Enjoy the pics. As you can see there were many boats out enjoying the mild weather.
