We had a safe and wonderful ocean passage from Florida to Cape Lookout North Carolina. This was a 330 nm leg and we finished this in 58 hours. We sailed half of it but needed to motor sail half due to winds under 10 knots from dead astern. The sailing was great with the winds 20-25. Here is a 3 minute video of the passage, plus some photos.

Awesome! We just did our overnighter around Cape Hatteras Wednesday night… we're now lying in Norfolk… just a little in front of you.
This is our first time in the Chesapeake and we're very excited. We have a week to explore the bay before we need to be in Baltimore… if you have any recommendations for stops we'd love to have your input.
Thanks for the video.. it was great.

As Michael said, over the top "awesome" video and documentation of the FL-NC passage! And while I know you enjoy doing such, I appreciate you doing such a fantastic job and letting me sail along. Just wish we were on our previous boat, IP320, Second Home and getting to meet y'all in person at Cape Lookout. Enjoy that wonderful spot and safe travels the remainder of the return trip to homeport!

We hope to meet you next year. We're headed N to the Chesapeake next week. You have been an inspiration to us. We have enjoyed your blog and photos. Very professional.
