We've finally made it to warmer weather!
We survived the 72 hour ride down to Fort Meyers Beach with only a few broken pieces and parts (autohelm and mainsail). The first 24 hours were gnarly with 30 knot winds and 10-15 foot following seas. Each day provided us with lighter seas and a more comfortable ride. We all missed the autohelm tremendously. The weather here has been warm and sunny and for that we are all extremely grateful as the evenings out on the high seas were pretty frigid.
