St Augustine to Fort Matanzas- 1.23.2012

After waiting for a serious fog to lift, and filling up with diesel and water at the St. Augustine marina, Sea Fever joined Compass Rose on the way to Fort Matanzas, a nice anchorage about 15 miles south of St. Augustine.  About 3/4 of the way there, Compass Rose was forced to drop anchor when her engine quit.  Turns out they wll need a new water pump and had to be towed back to St Augustine to find the part and make the repairs.  Sea Fever continued on to the Matanzas River and anchored with Mindfulness (who had moved down the day before) and M/V HazelAnn who got out of St Augustine earlier during a break in the fog.  Mindfulness and Sea Fever plan to stay near Fort Matanzas while we wait for Compass Rose.
