Crossing from Florida to Bimini

This video shows a glimpse of our crossing from Key Biscayne to Bimini. There were breaking waves of 6 to 8 feet. Not the most comfortable ride, but it was a much shorter trip because of the good wind.

When we got to Bimini, another boat expressed surprise that we would come in with such big wind and waves. I guess because if anything went wrong, the boat would crash into the rocks. The alternative seemed to be what four other boats from No Name did and come in with flat water and almost no wind, probably motoring the whole way. We would rather sail.

And yes, Matt starts talking about pooping and clogging toilets at the end. So much for an idyllic sailing video. Boys.
