The waters and skies were clear but the mental atmosphere was very cloudy delaying the start on our three-week journey to the Bahamas.
Six hours later on our way but with a change of course. Snorkeling in Palm Beach was eliminated and a new anchorage in Lake worth scheduled, so we can cross the ocean in comfort tomorrow. Our weather window is small.
“Blue Skies” a thirty-seven foot, 20 knot boat, owned by Deb and Bill Gibson is traveling with us. We are grateful for that. I am not sure how grateful they are, Dream Seeker, like most trawlers, has a top speed of eight knots. Blue Skies leaves later than us and gets there before us.
Flat waves, a fluffy wind and cloudless skies made for an eight hour languid crossing of the great divide.
