Ka'imi at Sea

Yahoo, we made it out of the ICW :). Sunday 12/28 we motored in clear weather to Jekyll Island and anchored right outside the marina. We traveled 28.5 nm for 7.05 hours at an avg speed of 4.0. Holding was good but the Jekyll Creek pass is BAD very, very shallow.

We left Jekyll Creek at 0745 this morning, Monday, 12/29, passing Cumberland Island and left the ICW via St. Mary's Sound at 1230. The weather is calm as are the seas, we have a light breeze of 4.2 knots and are running our spinnaker. At this moment 1647 this evening our position is N 30 28.534 W 081 08.160. Right Whales have been spotted in the immediate area, they are an endangered species, we are keeping our eye out for them.

Tuesday, 12/30, had a wild ride last night with north winds at 20 knots, it must of kicked up the gulf stream a bit, rock and roll, clear skies today, at 0841 we are N 29 24.135 W 080 36.657.

Cheers from the Atlantic, Kim and Mike :)
