This morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise as we prepared for our cruise from Long Boat Key, Florida to Venice Yacht Club, Venice Fl. It was another beautiful day and the weather and seas were just delightful.
We started our trip today at about noon, which was a later than we wanted. However, the late start gave us a great opportunity to enjoy the morning at the beautiful yacht club. It was a great morning for breakfast on the boat. The good news is that Venice Yacht club is only about 4 hours by boat away so there was no rush to get out today.
As part of the learning process we went over navigational equipment and the rules of the sea. We also took some time to go over trouble shooting techniques for various equipment on the vessel. To end the evening we enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Venice Yacht Club.
