|August 19th Update|
Monday was another great weather day. The winds were light from the South west. The wind picked up a bit in the afternoon to about 10-12 kts. The seas did not build in the short period so the ride remained very good. The winds subsided in the evening to make for a great cruise.We are currently steaming about 4 miles offshore....it is another great day. The wind is from the southwest at 10 kts. The seas are 1-2 feet and the ride is very good.
It is a nostalgic day out here today....I am on the bridge listening to the chatter of the Pilots as they are moving one large US flag tanker out of Port Canaveral. There is two more tankers about 1 mile from us at anchor...the Pilot will jump off the outbound and onto the inbound and move the ship next in line.
We are on a course of 120 keeping the best ride for our guests...the Mate has the con...(in charge) so I am just an observer at this moment.....Ahh a day ion the life of a sailor...
Come sail with us!
