I just returned from a long motorcycle ride to Key West and back to north Alabama, I stayed at St. Joe state park in Florida on the way down and back as well. Nice park.

I was thinking it would be a good place to take my 18 down to sail next spring for a week or two. A large "back bay" and looks like good facilities and beach to sail from. I could afford to stay there, and maybe it wouldn't be so crowded for a novice and less intimidating not having to mix it up with many swimmers and people on the beach. It would be next spring sometime, as I have not made an effort to repair the cracked front crossbar yet.

The narrow lake I sail at is a challenge with unpredictable winds and no long tacks to get a chance to think about trim much before the next tack. I'm looking forward to a chance to tack for a mile or more.

Has anyone sailed from there?

What would be the earliest month next year that would good to sail there?

I did see one Hobie out there with about six dolphins in hot pursuit a week ago, pretty cool.

I found this doing a search, and will be taking my h16 down in July this year. I have sailed here in the past, but always on the gulf side of the Cape. The surf is always very rough when I have launched my boat from the beach. I was thinking of using the boat landing at Eagle Harbor in the state park. Does anyone know if this is beachcat friendly? Does anyone want to divulge secret scalloping locations?
