Atlantic Crossing Day 1 - And we're off!

We motored under the 17th Street Causeway when the bridge opened at noon. Only 45 minutes later we turned off the engine. We aren't going very fast — just four to five knots most of the time — but we're sailing. Florida is still in sight, and we made a few phone calls to use the prepaid minutes on the cell phone. We've tacked once because the wind changed to northeasterly. It's expected to move clockwise over the next couple of days, which is good for our purposes. We probably won't do a blog entry every day because, truly, not much is happening, but we'll do daily position reports if we can get a connection.
