I just returned from a long motorcycle ride to Key West and back to north Alabama, I stayed at St. Joe state park in Florida on the way down and back as well. Nice park.
I was thinking it would be a good place to take my 18 down to sail next spring for a week or two. A large "back bay" and looks like good facilities and beach to sail from. I could afford to stay there, and maybe it wouldn't be so crowded for a novice and less intimidating not having to mix it up with many swimmers and people on the beach. It would be next spring sometime, as I have not made an effort to repair the cracked front crossbar yet.
The narrow lake I sail at is a challenge with unpredictable winds and no long tacks to get a chance to think about trim much before the next tack. I'm looking forward to a chance to tack for a mile or more.
Has anyone sailed from there?
What would be the earliest month next year that would good to sail there?
I did see one Hobie out there with about six dolphins in hot pursuit a week ago, pretty cool.
