[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Here it is: my first blog post. Our sail from St, Petersburg, FL, to our home port of Fairhope, AL. Of course it didn't start out smoothly as we trailered our dinghy down but didn't bring the key to get the motor off the dinghy to stow while sailing. So several hours of contemplating, stressing, calling locksmiths, we decided to screw it: let's go. Hoist it up using the halyards and get old comforters and tie it down. Get diesel and head out: we can do this even though none of us have ever sailed anything bigger than a sunfish.
