Weather Delay

We were so looking forward to tomorrow’s departure that it’s a shame the weather is not cooperating.  The rain is not the worst problem, it’s the wind.  As a result we are going to delay our departure from our home dock until Sunday, which delays our open house (open boat?) for a day.

  1. Right, when the National Weather Service posts in the marine forecast:



    it is a good day to stay in port.

  2. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

    Best of luck to Susan, Foster, and Belle on this wonderful journey! I sent you a message in a glass bottle. Let me know when you get it! I think your journey is truly amazing and courageous. I cannot wait to read about all of your exciting adventures. “Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…”

    Bon Voyage!

      Great quote – thanks for the kind wishes! I’ll keep watching for your message in a bottle :-)

  3. Weather is the one thing that was on the top of every cruisers list. We had 3 maybe 4 weather sites I constantly kept track of always, local, national, global, maritime and wind watcher. That was several computers ago. Probably the worst thing you can do is have a strict schedule. I did a little math about the 9 months, my calculation puts you back in home port, maybe January. Are you sure about that? Florida is a great place to kill time waiting for things to thaw out a little up north. We killed more than three months exploring the sandbar, had to think about leaving when I started to suffer from the effect of ism. Ism is a social disease that centers on alcohol, as in alcoholism. Kidding of course, my point is, it’s a nonstop good time and the best time for visitors to catchup if you want. Your weather will improve, be ready when it does. Safe cruising..

    • I think all boaters are weather geeks! We left today, and we don’t plan on adhering to a set schedule. Our goal is to reach our home dock next April.

  4. Have a great adventure! Lynn envies you (me not so much because I get sick on the water…)

    I’ll keep you up to date on Robotics!
