CP2 in Chokoloskee, FL

SandyBottom and SOS reached Chokoloskee (CP2) at about 1:00pm on Wednesday the 7th.   Sailing from Indian Key through narrow canals to CP2 was one of the most difficult efforts so far:  thin water, currents,  howling head winds, heat, etc.    Lots of hard work.  The high tide at CP2 is at about 2pm. 

On reaching Chokoloskee Bay, they paused at one point because they were not making any forward progress there --despite exhausting effort. The tide was rising (high tide at 2pm) so taking a break may have been helpful; more depth being helpful.

They did not stay long at CP2.  By 3:50pm SB and SOS were on their way out toward the Gulf.
