Well now… It’s November 25th and I’ve been sailing my buns off and enjoying every trip.
Sailing Fort Myers Beach is a treat that I want to share with as many people as possible. The water is usually good with 1 to 2 foot rollies and winds from 5 to 15. Smooth, I mean SMOOTH sailing.
I’ve had some great overnight charters lately. Seems like the two day charter is catching on. For those of you that have a couple of days and are going to be here check out those packages and give me a call. I’ll customize your trip and make it a very special time for everyone that comes along.
I just got in today from a two day trip with Jack and Joanne. It was great. We had enough wind to travel, on Saturday, down the coast to around Lovers Key and then back up. At that point a small squall hit us. Now this was the fastest squall I’ve ever seen. I dropped the sails as the visibility dropped to less that a quarter mile and put on the slicker. It hit. The rain came and went in about 3 minutes. That was it. Boom. Gone. So off came the slicker and back in T-shirt and shorts and we continued.
We ended up in Glover Bight for the evening and night. GREAT sunset and dolphins. A night of Rummy and then drifted to sleep in a calm bay.
In the morning we had a great breakfast and off we went. When we got to the Gulf, the wind was gone. We were pushing 1.6 knots and enjoying looking for wind. Then an hour later we had a solid 12 to 16 and sailed away down the coast of Estero Island and back to our home port at Salty Sam’s Marina. Jack hit 7.2 knots on a beam reach so we got to the dock on time.
Tomorrow, I pick up my next charter at the airport and we sail all day and spend the night at the marina and then they need to get a rent-a-car to travel the state.
Still fitting in the half day and sunset sails so, Let’s Go Sailing!
Drop me a line, or give me a call and I’ll put together your custom charter. A chance of a lifetime at a very affordable price.
See you on the dock.
