Current Location: ICW MM 738, Jacksonville, FL
Miles Traveled: 62
Weather: Sunny, breezy, low-70s
Highlights: Stars were out in full force tonight, and the half-moon rose around mid-night, so was very peaceful as we sailed wing-and-wing with light winds directly behind us. Early in the night, we were averaging between 5 and 6 knots of speed, but as the wind died in the early morning hours, our speed dropped to about 4 knots. Finally turned on one of the engines, and motor-sailed the last few hours, arriving at the Jacksonville inlet (St. Johns River) just before noon. Rode the tide up the river about 7 miles, averaging over 9 knots most of the way, until we hit the ICW turn-off. Day didn't end well, however. We were trying to get under the ICW bridge, but our windex snagged in some construction safety netting that was hanging down below the bridge. We were able to back out of the bridge before any further damage, but decided to anchor north of the bridge for the night, and wait for low tide in the morning before attempting another pass. Dropped anchor around 3PM and used the rest of the day to catch up on sleep, eat a light dinner, and catch up on emails and reading.
