Sailing to the Dry tortugas

Hello All,

Just finished reading of Russ Meyers sailing trip to Dry Tortuga.  It's a good read.  you can find it here: http://www.meyersix.org/dry_tortugas.htm

Note what quote is on the opening page.
"The sea is selective, slow at recognition of effort and aptitude, but fast in sinking the unfit"  - Adm Felix Riesenberg.

Awesome article.  Good read, good info and nice pictures.  It was encouraging that he thinks a CP16 could make the trip after all he went through.  I think that says a lot about a CP16.  Thanks for sharing.
