Making Plans to Sail Again

After a very nice week and a half of visiting family in Florida we are preparing to continue sailing north. We have decided to leave tomorrow morning and sail overnight with Cumberland Island, GA as our destination. We have heard very nice things about Cumberland Island and hope to tour it while we are there. We had wanted to sign up for a guided tour but they were booked for over a week. We don't want to commit to staying there that long. 
George found a nice website that will plot a course using wind and current. It is very flexible and allows you to set your preferences including maximum wind, maximum wind gusts, minimum sailing speed (speed at which you will turn motor on). The program is called FastSeas. I have included a photo of tomorrow's course which will be taking us out into the Gulf Stream.
