Most of the bay is usually pretty decent in a North wind, at least until you get west of the bridge, that stretch from the bridge to the mouth of the apalach river gets kind of choppy. You can cut the corner there some if you have enough tide, but I usually don't as it only saves a mile or two.

Thanks for the pics, have a great trip!

Anchored just West of the Destin East pass last night. I should have gone on into the ditch for protection from the north winds that shifted around to the East by this morning. Making good time 7.5 knots @ 1400 rpm I guess the flood tide is with me in the ditch.Click image for larger version

Spanish Moon it looks like things are going well. How far west are you going? If crossing the Miss. River when do you plan to do that and have you crossed through the locks there before?
