RI to FL - Day 27
Georgetown, SC to Charleston, SC
Today we cruised to Charleston, SC…. Actually just past Charleston to the Stono River.

We departed from Georgetown earlier than we have been leaving at 0630 and headed out to the ICW. The current in this area is like a yo-yo… with you for a few miles and then it switches against you.

There was a lot of boat traffic today… several boats cruising south that we have seen a couple of times before today and some new ones. Being Saturday the local boaters were also out in large numbers.

Was quite chilly when we left… 34 degrees but as the day proceeded it turned out to be quite nice… think it made it to 70 degrees and low tonight only 54 degrees.

We arrived to Charleston area earlier than expected… do we anchor now or continue to our next good anchorage. Checking the logs and guides next dog friendly location was 24 miles further… that would be an hour or so after sunset and over 12 hours total for the day… Nope… let’s anchor now and continue tomorrow.

We exited Elliott’s Cut with current boosting our speed to 9.5 knots… we should of been making 6.5 knots so we had a 3 knot current pushing us… glad it was pushing us and not against us. We turned to the south and headed out the Stono River towards the St. Johns Yacht Harbor and dropped the hook just NE of the marina at approximately 1555. Location: N32°45.411’, W080°00.651’.

We traveled today for 9 hours and 15 minutes covering 61.18 nautical miles averaging 6.61 knots.

RI to FL - Day 26
Myrtle Beach, SC to Georgetown, SC
Today we had the option of cruising a long day to Charleston, SC or a short day to Georgetown, SC… we chose the short day.

We departed from Opsrey Marina at approximately 0750… 30 degrees outside and frost and ice on most everything. Absolutely no wind and the ICW was like glass mirroring the cypress trees in the water… it was beautiful!

We had the current with us and a very swift one… I throttle back to 2000 rpm and we flew down the waterway at over 7 knots… hitting 8 knots a few times… Great speed and saving fuel.

We arrived to Georgetown, SC at approximately 1200 and docked at the Georgetown Public Dock… Location: N33°21.894’, W079°16.970’.

We traveled today for 4 hours and 10 minutes covering 28.07 nautical miles averaging 6.74 knots.

RI to FL - Day 25
Southport, NC to Myrtle Beach, SC
Lazy morning… late departure at 0755 from Indigo Plantation Marina… 300 feet and we were back in the ICW heading south. First thing I saw ahead of us was a USCG small boat boarding a sailboat… safety inspections… luckily we got past them and did not get stopped and boarded. We would have passed the inspection but it is just time consuming.

Our destination for the evening was Osprey Marina, Myrtle Beach, SC… yep; we crossed the state line today and are now in SC… Yeah!

Nothing spectacular happened after passing the USCG small boat… saw a lot of boat traffic passing us in both directions north and south. I take that back... there was one really cool thing we saw... an elephant playing in the water at the edge of the ICW... really cool!

We arrived to Osprey Marina shortly after 1600 and were securely docked at approximately 1625… Location: N33°40.872’, W079°02.508’.

We traveled today for 8 hours and 30 minutes covering 55.55 nautical miles averaging 6.54 knots.
