We start our multi-day offshore run from Panama City to St. Pete. Just a few hours in we get hit by a massive thunderstorm – leaving behind big, confused seas. Some water over the bow and a sketchy pitch-black trip to the pointy end at 0300 – but it’s absolutely beautiful out there!
We spend a couple more days at the Panama City Marina prepping the boat for our offshore run. We take you on a tour of a very lived-in Dawn Treader, then hit the beach for some shenanigans!
We FINALLY make Florida! After crossing Mobile Bay and getting back into the ICW we make our way to Palafox Pier Marina in Pensacola. We tie up and survey our hot mess of a sailboat, then decide to blow off the chores for some food, sand, sun, and fun. Who wants to work in a place like this?
