Wanted: Sea Legs

My captain has identified favorable weather conditions for heading northeast. This is earlier than we planned to depart Key West but we have decided to take advantage of this opportunity to sail straight to Charleston, South Carolina.

We always try to be ready for a quick get-a-way--in case we need to run from bad weather--and having only a few hours to make the final preparations is probably a good thing because I'll be too busy to get all emotional over leaving.  

Ten weeks of posh marina living has turned this once hearty sailor into a dockside princess. For the first time in over 5 years of cruising, I will begin an offshore passage without sea legs and this has me very concerned.
