Bradenton, FL to Pensacola, FL

Miles: 350 Hours: 15 Virtually no wind on our passage to Pensacola so we motored most of the time.  It was stifling just sitting in the cockpit as what little wind there was came off our stern.  Dolphins and flying fish abound.  We had no idea there was so much life this far off shore.
