Bad Weather & Palm Beach

Just north of Miami we ran into some bad weather, first a thunder storm came off the coast quickly and we got a very good fresh water wash down and some distant lightning.

No sooner had that finished a front came through, 35 knot winds with the front and a steady 27 – 30 knots once it had passed.

After a few hours the sea built up, we were taking spray over the bow and pitching quickly. A nuisance but our first look at Kapowai in any sort of sea, she handled it well.

However we decided to put into Palm Beach for two nights and had a relaxing stay, never saw the town itself as the Marina was too far away.
