Sunset Cruise to San Carlos Island

A few weeks ago the captain of the Old Glory catamaran treated his guests to an unexpected tour of the western end of San Carlos Island. We had just returned from an absolutely stunning sunset cruise over to Sanibel Island when our captain decided to take an unusual route back to the dock at Salty Sam's Marina.

'Weather' We Sail or Not

Firmly within the category of "Things in This Life Not Under Our Control" is the weather.

We love sailing...so much in fact, that we wish we could go sailing Every! Single!! Day!!!

But the irrefutable fact is: The wind, weather and the sea are in charge of whether we sail or not.

Beautiful Weather, Wonderful Sanibel Sailing

 

We've had some wonderful sailing conditions this spring, making for beautiful sailing here in Southwest Florida. 

Skipper Bud and I had the pleasure recently of taking a family across San Carlos Bay to Pt. Ybel at the eastern tip of Sanibel Island. Winds were out of the SSW at about 12 knots, which gave us plenty of wind to get our catamaran Old Glory up and moving. At times we saw 4 knots boat speed over the ground...not bad!
