We recently sailed from Charleston area of South Carolina to our Winter home in Port of the Islands Marina just south of Marco Island Florida. Of course, we would end up with a Gale! 50 Knot wind gusts with sustained 35-40 delayed us for 3 days. Watch the fun!

TIMELINE:
0:00 - First 24 hours - rocky seas
1:56 - Dinghy dangerously comes disconnected from davit!
7:40 - 3 days of bad weather
10:45 - Finally pulling anchor, tripping the breaker and jamming the winch
13:18 - Docking in the Gale
14:29 - New Isinglass enclosure in back cockpit
17:46 - Fixing clutches and video consent!
