C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

One of our favorite anchorages

A pleasant mixture of sailing and motorsailing allowed us to reach Matanzas Inlet in time to enjoy the sunset.

Anne and I first dropped the hook in this anchorage in spring 2006.  The anchorage offers easy access to both inland and Atlantic beaches; an historic fort to tour; and we have never competed with another vessel for space in the anchorage.

The strong currents and lack of detail on the charts likely intimidate most skippers.  A bit of common sense and water reading skills developed through paddling whitewater have always kept plenty of water under our keel on approach to the anchorage.
