LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
Florida Panhandle: You can sail here 12 months a year, but many people don’t sail in December and January; we like it then, when the crowds are gone. But truly, the best months are September. October, March, and April, when the wind is off the land in the morning and comes in as a sea breeze (from the south here) at an average of 12 to 15 knots. It’s hot in June and July, but the water is beautiful. We’re located on the ICW, a series of very large bays, and the Gulf of Mexico is about two hours away. It’s relaxing and beautiful here.
