I arrived at CP1 about 6:30 today after a wild first leg of the 2013 Everglades Challenge. We had a rainy start, and I ended up going into the Gulf instead of taking the ICW. The waves were pretty amazing, with some breakers in the 8 foot range. Maybe higher. I came back in through Longboat Pass, surfing over a 100 yard sand bar at about 12 knots… a wild ride to be remembered forever, but not repeated! The whole ride down was wild, and I will post more later, but suffice to say that I am still exhausted and recovering from hypothermia, so I’m staying here overnight, and will head to CP 2 tomorrow, weather permitting!

- “There aren’t too many small boat voyagers left, and we are they. Those of us with experience sailing, paddling, and rowing light expeditionary craft on adventuresome treks have a bit of a duty to set good, seamanlike examples to those who are paying attention to what we do, both to further the passion, and ensure that those who follow our path do so in safety. For they, in turn, will be the ones to further the passion in years to come.”
