Cape Canaveral Day Sail

We sailed with Kathy’s sister, Kari, her husband Mike, and daughter Kami. Kami’s friend Nicki came along too, as did Mike’s sister Laurie, and husband Skip. Kari joined us at our anchorage for the trip up the ICW (intercoastal waterway), through the barge canal, the Canaveral Lock, and into Cape Marina where we picked up everyone else. Then we motored out into the ocean and put up the sails. The wind was 10-12 kts and seas were smooth, so we had a nice 2 hours under sail. Then the wind quit and we motored to shallow water over the Canaveral Bight for a swim.
A huge storm cell over land had us worried about the return trip since the past 2 days saw drenching rain in the afternoons. But it dissipated while we swam, giving us a smooth trip home.
Kami and Nicki are spending the night with us, and I’m going fishing with Mike and Skip on Skip’s boat in the morning.
Another perfect day!
