Sail to Fort Meyer Beach, Florida
We had nearly perfect weather for the 800 nautical miles of sailing from Guatemala to Fort Meyers, Florida. One night off Belize it blew 25knots just aft of the beam and our concern was slowing the boat down to around 8 knots. There was plenty of wind to go faster, but we reduced sail to just a double reefed main as it was a bit to bumpy to sleep with a full set of sails.
