I am happy to report that the Constance Marie sailed as one of 12 boats in the fleet. We sailed down the peninsula past Turkey Point and into the inter-coastal waterway over to the mouth of the Sassafras River. From their we "iron-sailed" and arrived around 1800. We got a mooring near the shore and Olivia and I settled down for the fireworks display. It's about a 12 mile journey up the Sassafras. Past Lloyds Creek, Turner Creek on the starboard side and the plantation with all the six feet high Lotus water plants.
It was great pulling a weekender on the Constance Marie. The coffee on the boat that next morning was even better.
