Apalachicola Cruise and Release of Ep.5 of the Transatlantic Trip

Apalachicola Cruise

It is November 15, 2019 and we are currently in the quaint Florida town of Apalachicola.  We came here as a "cruise" from Point Yacht Club.  Details of the cruise are below.  Unfortunately due to weather concerns, a few boats dropped out, but none the less, 4 boats made it to our destination.  We experienced a strong cold front which the weatherman called an "Arctic Front" bringing gusty winds from the north (we measured 22-34 kts).  But we bundled up, reefed the sails and had a great (and fast) sail.

Apalachicola Sailing!

All boats made it safely and we are having a great time!
