SOS: Beating upwind in inches of water

No moon at 9:00pm,  sailing into an east wind blowing 13-15 kt with 20kt gusts,  low tide at -1 foot,  barriers to avoid    --or else be the pinball.

Florida Bay sure plays a mean pinball 

At 9am and 9pm on 3/8  it was low tide at -1 foot
SOS via crocodile drag-over

Progress at 9:00pm Tuesday,  after having left CP3 at  8:00am.   
It's been a long day so far.

The ground tracks look like damned good tacks for all that, until boinging into the keys :-) Well done.
