We went down the ICW to Lake worth. We sailed most of the way downwind reaching 9 knots. YEAH ! we were flying in the ICW. In total, this trip was 59 miles. We missed one of the bridge openings so we got to the anchorage as it was getting dark (5:30pm). It was a long day but a very enjoyable one. We only stayed here the night at Lake Worth.

The very next day, we sailed offshore from Lake Worth to Lake Sylvia in Ft. Lauderdale. The waves about 5-10 feet at every 8 seconds on the aft quarter. Winds were at 15 knots gusting to 25. At first, the waves were rocking our boat in a very uncomfortable manner but soon we fell off a wee bit and it was more tolerable.

Upon reaching Lake Sylvia there was a 41' catamaran that was following us and decided to set his anchor right in front of us and over our anchor. Really ? Normally, a boat behind should wait to see where the boat in front will anchor then anchor himself at a good distance. I guess he was in a hurry.

The next day, he moved enough for us to pull our anchor and off we went to Cooley's Landing Marina on the New River in Ft.Lauderdale.
