I am safe back in the USA. My on line customs check in took 3 minutes, and because it was a video call now I have “Trusted” check-in status. That means I just give Customs this number and I am ok. Wow!!

So, the sail was boring, but 5 miles out Neptune had other plans. Wind 25 – 30 knots and waver 3 meters hit me for almost 4 hours while Intrepid and I fought for every foot (ok meters for you non Americans), into the calm of the Lake Worth Inlet at West Palm Beach Florida. The current off Florida naturally flows to the north. When you get 30 knot winds from the north, OMG! But true to form, Intrepid did not let me down. In a few weeks we will take her out of the water in Indian Town and time for a much anticipated makeover. She has been a sturdy travel companion and now I want to get her ready for a new generation of sailors, my kids and grandkids.

For me, my body is literally still moving as a result of the awful weather this morning. You know, when your standing at a counter and everything is still moving :). But that will quickly subside when I drink the 6-pack of Coors Banquet Beer the Marina gave me, Hoorah!

More to come, but for now, how sweet it is to be home 🙂 Thanks Intrepid!

Tim
