WoohhooO! Finally finished The Journey around Florida! My dad and brought Windsong up from Stuart to Harbortown Marina in Merritt Island. She will stay there for the next month or so where I will sail and enjoy the local waters. When the month is up, I'll bring her up to St. Augustine to begin the re-fit. I just got home so I'll have to detail the trip later, including the Okeechobee Waterway section.

Ahoy Erick,

I wanted to make sure you know about Liz Clark. She is a champion surfer who took off from Santa Barbra a few years ago to sail and surf the world. She has done well and is loving life in the South Pacific at the moment. Check out her blog.

Best of luck to you and your adventures!

"Something about sailing a boat brings so many senses and sensations into play that it's very difficult to pinpoint what it is specifically that makes me like it so much: the sight of sails and sheets overhanging the water; the foam and spray flying as the bow cuts the water; the motion of the boat; the physical and mental ballet necessary to handle the boat correctly. A sailboat might just be the most beautiful, sensuous and intelligent blend of man/machine/and elements that exists in the world today. The relationship between the three is the most harmonious I have experienced so far. Besides you can have a beer while you do it". --anonymous
