Two More Finish FL Circumnavigation

Gus Bianchi (in orange) was there to meet Jim Windle and Marc DeLuca when they made landfall at the North End Boat Ramp (N 14th Street) in Fernandina Beach, FL. He presented their commemorative tee shirts to them marking their completion of the 1,515-mile Florida Saltwater Circumnavigation PaddlingTrail, which started in Pensacola.

They actually made landfall at the municipal marina ramp yesterday afternoon, but returned to the ramp today to paddle the last two miles and make the official landfall where they were greeted by family, friends, and a few other prior circumnavigators.

Our congratulations go out to Jim and Marc for a great expedition. The link to their site is in the right margin: Kayak Around Florida. I got a kick out of the song they chose to celebrate the occasion. What could be more appropriate than “This is How We Roll,” nor to pick a song done by a group named after where they’re standing: Florida-Georgia Line.
