Sailing Key West to Dry Tortugas to Jax

For the 2012 Christmas to New Year holiday, I sailed a 32′ Gemni 3200 catamaran Blue Water Walker from Key West to Dry Tortugas to Jacksonville with a new owner and crew of 4. This was the return trip from the Jax to Key West delivery I did in March. (See the March pics HERE.) I stand up paddled around Fort Jackson at the Dry Tortugas (70 miles west of Key West). Good times. Pics are below. )The aerial shot of the fort is courtesy of the U.S. National Park Service. Some background on the fort is HERE.
