Voyage: Pensacola to the Miami Boat Show, February 2017


Aerial silks underway!  This was our first time attempting this stunt on Libra and we actually caught it via drone footage. What a sight!  Annie with HaveWindWillTravel.com made the voyage with us and was brave enough (or crazy enough!) to climb the silks during our last day on the water while it was calm and glassy out.  That was not the case when Libra left Pensacola.  Strong south winds pushed Libra far to the west, to the point that the crew began spotting many of the oil rigs around Louisiana and Texas during the second day of the voyage.  It was a sporty ride the first two days and several crew members sadly were getting a little green around the gills.  (Seasickness is definitely something that happens on Libra but it is good to learn what your motion tolerance is and what medications help you prevent it.)  The last three days of the voyage offered calmer winds and a chance to hop off the boat and get a refreshing swim in in the Atlantic Ocean!  The crew also enjoyed amazing meals cooked most nights by Phillip from HaveWindWillTravel who loves to play head chef on the boat!  Fresh black fin tuna and Mahi Mahi caught underway made for some exceptional meals on passage.
