Somewhat nasty weather. It reminds me of several first challenges Headwinds gusting to 25-30. Watertribers got a break in last few years. Not anymore.
Party at Key Largo has started :)
Three boats out of Ultiimate Florida (1200 miles) are here. Sleek BandB designed expedition canoe/trimaran, Seapearl and Nacra 20 cat. The cat limped in double reefed, with shreaded jib.
Hectic day of fixing, sorting and resupplying for next leg up Atlantic coast.

Nobody mentioned beach cats. Hobie Wave fills the bill 100%
Easy to rig. Easy to sail. Will float pointy side up with 4 adults on it.

Victor Yazykov's "cruising" boat. "Daughter of Wind". Fast.
1 1/2 circumnavigations without autopilots of any kinds.
33 ft. Freestanding rotating mast. "Split" foils - "keel" with ballast well aft and daggerboard up front.
