Longboat to Venice Yacht Club

Monday, August 2, 2010
We left the dock today at 10 AM headed for Venice Yacht Club. We enjoyed a nice summer day in FL. Little wind, calm seas and humid.
We sailed past Sarasota, out Big Sarasota Pass which separates Longboat and Siesta Key. It has shoaled in recently but the Sarasota Yacht Club website provides navigational info to safely pass through. I saw no less than 8 feet in depth, I need 4 feet.
Exiting Big Sarasota Pass
Entering the Venice Inlet
Once through the pass we speeded up to 20 and had an easy ride to Venice Inlet about 12 miles. Total miles today 24. WE arrived at VYC at noon, just in time to enjoy the pool. dinner tonight at a nearby restaurant, The Crow's Nest. The yacht club is closed on Mondays.
