day twelve - St. Johns River

Sail off anchor 7:00.  Some power boats and jet skis made some noise last night, they finally went home around sunset.  Peaceful night, slept well.
Downwind sail on Doctors Inlet, 2.3.  Steak and eggs for breakfast, buffalo bar and chocolate sea salt Rx bar.  

On St. Johns River 8:00, steady tack across river at 3.6.  Navionics app tells me I will be sailing against the tide most of the morning.  

11:00 making 3.7, 12:00 tack at Wilkie Point.

Tack at 12:20, then tack again at 1:00 off Governors Creek, another tack 2:30.  Main down to pass under a bridge.  Motorsailing on the far side of bridge.  Struggle to find some wind, catch a breeze 3:25.

4:10 no wind, under power.  I can see showers moving in from the west.

I slip on the foul weather gear but for no point as the rain showers pass north and south of us.

Anchor down 5:40, skies clearing and a beautiful evening.

43.08 NM
Mac and cheese for dinner.
