Heading to Fort Lauderdale tomorrow
We're heading out of North Palm Beach tomorrow for Fort Lauderdale. There are 24 or 25 bridges on the ICW between here and there, and 15 of them only open on certain schedules, so we'll be going on the outside. We'll be going to the New River Municipal Marina for a night and then moving to Cooley's Landing Marina. It's about a 52 mile trip, door to door, and the weather forecast is OK (not bad, not good) for tomorrow - 15-20kt breeze from the Northeast with 2-4 foot (read: 4-8ft) seas on the way down. Hopefully they won't be too bumpy and we'll be able to sail. We'll have the SPOT going as usual!
