Taking the interstate

Driven by the cold of winter and the upcoming schedule of happy family events, the goal of each day was progress to the boatyard and we did not wander from our route. Traveling south on the interstate, we sailed most of the distance off shore. During a passage from North Carolina to Fernandina Florida, a gale provided a fast but uncomfortable ride. Standing at the wheel in a wildly rolling boat with waves washing over the sides was tiring, so we took one hour shifts on the wheel and one hour rest periods braced in deep relaxation. Here is a picture of the slower, but more dignified path on the ICW.
