KiwiBird overnighted somewhere between Sanibel and Wiggins Pass and is currently just off Wiggins. I assume there must be somewhat favorable winds, as she is running about 0.8 miles offshore, rather than staying as close to the windward shore as possible.
Winds are predicted to turn gradually toward the southeast and then to the south tonight, continuing at 10-15 knots. If she can pass Cape Romano before too much of that happens, it would be expeditious. From Cape Romano to Chokoloskee, the track is more or less east. Although the south wind will be better for sailing, there will also be larger waves, as the wind will be blowing in unimpeded off the Gulf.
Incidentally, this came from SPOT, which apparently is resurrected. Let's hope it continues its recovery, as more frequent position reports will be in the offing.--Floatsome
