Jensen Beach, FL

Left Vero Beach at 11:30am in a blustery westerly and travelled down the ICW to Jensen Beach. Made a lot of leaway and needed to be careful to keep in the channel between markers. Pass by Fort Pierce inlet without incident. The shoal in the channel north of the inlet did not show on our depth sounder. Anchored on the southwest side on the Jensen Beach bridge in about 7′ of water. There are two liveaboards here and half a dozen cruising sailboats. Looks like it is east to take the dinghy ashore to a park, ┬ábut given the conditions are probably going to stay on the boat. The wind has started to move to the northwest as forceast, blowing about 20kts. The anchorage provides less wind protection than I expected but there is good protection from waves.
