  1. Loved watching your track from Great Sale Cay to Jax. Looks like the wind and the position of the Gulf Stream was perfect for You.
    What was your best 24 hr run?

    1. Thanks, Pete! It was a lot of fun, but not without its challenges. 🙂 I’m not really sure what our best 24 hour run was because it was so stop and go, as the upcoming blog post will describe. I do know that we were doing 7+ knots in the Gulf Stream. When we leave the Bahamas next year we’re definitely going to make a big jump again vs. heading to Ft. Pierce. The amount of time we’ve saved heading north has been amazing. Kimberly
