Day one - arrived safely in Pass Christian, MS

posted: Jun 9, 06:55 PM

John stayed within one or two miles of shore and sailed for a little over five hours on Wednesday, arriving at the marina in Pass Christian, MS around 4:30pm. Winds were steady and the boat handled well with the sail reefed. No oil was visible in the water but he could smell something in the air – it didn’t smell like normal clean ocean air. He saw a few dolphin and many birds. Several military aircraft flew overhead. The beaches were completely deserted and not many boats were out.

On a lighter note: when John arrived at the marina, he rowed over to the restaurant (in his boat) to ask where he could park. The man looked at him and replied, “Where is your boat?”
