After taking turns at the Coconut Grove dock, Sea Fever and Compass Rose left the Miami area for the Keys. We had barely entered the Dinner Key Channel headed to Biscayne Bay when...BEEP..BEEP BEEP....checked the engine the chartplotter autopilot..depth sounder... everything seemed ok..but beep on... Wait..weather alert..."South Miami is in the path of severe thunderstorms with 58 mph winds and nickel size hail. If you are in the area head to ground floor..tornados are indicated." OK..it is headed east we are headed south...go for it.
However, the SE winds we were promised turned out to be from the south so we motored awhile then were able get the gennys out until we couldn't head any closer to the wind and were going far off track for the channel at featherbed bank.
