Wow, from a 10 year Power Boater to a wonderful experience sailing. Went sailing for the first time ever aboard TropicBird with Captain Patrick Higgins and First Mate Martha. Sailed from Goodland, Fla. to, in and around the Ten Thousand Islands. Great weather and light wind, which was all that was needed to move us along effortlessly with just the noise of the water, not the roar of an engine. Anchored early afternoon off one of the Islands, had a light lunch, explored the Island and then sailed back to port. The Captain and First Mate made everything look easy and made great company on a wonderful trip for the first time sailors. Definitely will sail again. Thanks for a great day.
