Today we left the Anchorage and began our voyage! We left at 1615 (local time) to strong east winds and partly sunny skies. We motored the entire way to the Saint Lucie inlet and arrived at 1820 (local time). There we anchored in the lee of a beautiful island. Before we left changes were made on the boat. They are as follows: two cleats on the bow, new backstay chainplate, new birdie, oil change, raw water foot pump installed, new engine zinc, two spinacker poles loaded, new half inch regatta braid jib sheet, new 3/8th inch regatta braid main sheet. We really miss our friends from Grazie Dio but are happy to have left.
