Description:The original plan for the Florida trip was do visit the Upper
Keys, starting from a charter base in the Miami area. In addition
to the wonderful sailing and tropical setting of the keys, the
trip would contribute to the local economy devastated by
Hurricane Irma last September. Unfortunately, over a year later,
the area is still trying to recover. Specifically, the charter
base is nothing but broken and sunken docks. The redesigned
trip will still go to Florida, but instead depart from Ocean's
Edge Resort and Marina, 5950 Peninsular Avenue in Key West. The
goal is to sail to Dry Tortugas National Park, about seventy
miles to the west, first stopping at Marquesas Keys, about
twenty miles northwest of Key West. This will shorten the
distance to the Dry Tortugas considerably. The Park is most
famous for Fort Jefferson, where Dr. Samuel Mudd (the doctor who
treated John Wilkes Booth) was imprisoned.
