Voyage: Key West to Pensacola, February 2017


Fort Jefferson, what a beautiful place!  Many thanks to our National Park Rangers who help to maintain and preserve the pristine beauty and history of this national monument.  Libra took an adventurous crew of six out of Key West to the Dry Tortugas to spend a warm sunny day walking around Fort Jefferson before shoving off to make the remaining 400 miles north to Pensacola.  With big winds, strangely from the south that time of year, Libra made some great speeds in the southern part of the Gulf, rocketing along at 10+ knots.  The wind died off the last two days of the voyage and the crew spent some very serene, beautiful evenings on the deck of Libra watching the sun dip down below the horizon.  Many of the crew members said their biggest takeaway from this voyage was time spent with Captains Ryan and Randy learning sail tactics, navigation and just, in general, a passion for offshore voyaging.  Ryan and Randy look forward to sharing the same experience with you: www.saillibra.com/join-a-sail/
