Ft.George River,FL to Fernandina Beach
Florida to Rhode Island - Day 8
At 0700 hours we pulled the anchor and departed from Fort George River and headed north on the ICW towards Fernandina Beach, FL. We would be spending a week in Fernandina Beach attending the MTOA Southern Rendezvous being held at the Fernandina Harbor Marina. SANCTUARY departed at the same time as we did.
We did not have far to go today… but since we would be staying at a marina we wanted to arrive early to get the most bang for our buck as they say… we arrived at approximately 0915 hours and contacted the marina on VHF… we needed a pump-out before we docked for a week… after pumping out our holding tank we moved forward 100 yards to where we would be docked for the next 7 days… Fernandina Harbor Marina at approximate location N30°40.227’, W081°27.991’.
Today we traveled for 2 hours and 15 minutes covering 16.98 nautical miles averaging 7.54 knots.
