We left Grand Marina yesterday morning at 9.00 am. It was very windy and
we were somewhat hemmed in by Pashka in front and a big motor yacht
behind. A little imaginative springing from the rear holding the back in
and the front blew out and round and were did a complete 360 in the very
narrow channel to drive out into the yacht basin. I felt we needed
applause quite frankly !
It was a lovely sail down Mobile bay then we turned left and headed down
the ship channel to Homeport. This is a lovely marina and it is owned by
Jimmy Buffets sister – Lulu. It is very expensive and full of extremely
expensive boats – The biggest of which was Bullish which looked to be at
least 100ft motor yacht. Very nice. We are leaving this morning for
Pensacola and as it is only 35 miles away we should be there before dark
