FL to CT Day 1
Punta Gorda, FL to Pelican Bay
First day of our journey back to CT... we were very excited to get underway... we had a short day planned going only to Pelican Bay and anchor for the night. Having only 21 nautical miles to travel we did not depart at first light... we slept in and did not leave the docks until approximately 0930.
It was a little windy today with NE winds at 10-15 knots making Charlotte Harbor a bit lumpy with 2-3 waves and no sunshine... overcast the entire cruise to Pelican Bay. The current was against as well so we did not make a lot of speed... but again only 21 miles to travel... no big deal... :)
We arrived to Pelican bay and dropped the hook at approximately 1300 at N26 40.994', W082 14.487'. We traveled for 3.5 hours covering 20.6 nautical miles averaging 5.87 knots.
