Follow Team B&B via the SPOT tracker as then go off-shore through Ponce de Leon inlet at New Smyrna Beach....

At 12:05pm  SOS reported on their transit out the inlet:   "The inlet was full of power boat traffic, the channel was hard against the northern jetty with breaking waves only 25 feet away, east wind required short tacking."

SOS reported that the seas are now smoother today with gentler rollers. Depending on speed, they may sail offshore all the way to the Ft. Clinch Intlet (where submarines come and go), or they might pull into the Jacksonville Inlet or evern earlier to the St. Augustine Inlet.  The distance from Ponce de Leon Inlet to the Ft. Clinch stage point is at least 106nm (122miles).
