CT to FL Day 24
St. Johns Island, SC to Port Royal, SC
We pulled anchor this morning at 0800... 8 to 9 hour day planned to Beaufort, SC. It was a bright and sunny day with heavier winds than what we have had in while... NE winds 10 to 15 knots steady all day... again today we had the typical ICW Yo-Yo currents... one minute we are going over 9 knots and then you drop to under 5 knots as you pass each inlet from the Atlantic.... overall we averaged slightly above our planned 6.5 knots.

We tried making reservations at Lay's Island Marina... we had never been there and thought it would a nice change... they were full... tried Safe Harbor Beaufort... they were full... even the moorings were full when we called... thought maybe we were going to have to anchor... then we found a slip at Safe Harbor Port Royal... a little further south of Beaufort but we could Uber to downtown easily.

We arrived to the Safe Harbor Port Royal at 1620 and were secure on the dock with shore power at 1630... Our location for night N32°23.769',W080°40.658'. We traveled today for 8.5 hours covering 57.0 nautical miles averaging 6.7 knots.

CT to FL Day 23
Georgetown, SC to St. Johns Island, SC
We left Georgetown this morning at 0715... was a very gloomy day the forecast was for rain in the morning... we did get rain late in the morning... nothing real heavy but it lasted for most of the day... We did not see any sunshine until reaching Charleston Harbor.

A lot of skinny water today and shoaled areas... no issues but sure kept you on your toes running in 5.5 to 6 feet of water for hours... even we had hit bottom it's all mud.... GRIN

As we passed Charleston City Marina we saw one of sister ships docked... STEEL MAGNOLIA... she's a 50' Florida Bay Coaster out of St. Michaels, MD. With only 18 Florida bay Coasters ever being built it's a rare occasion for us to see another Coasters. We have only seen three others close to us in the 16 years we have owned SAILS

We arrived to the our anchorage location on the Stono River just on the south side of Elliots Cut at 1600... we were secure on the hook at 1615... Our location for night N32°46.215',W080°00.739'. We traveled today for 9.0 hours covering 61.0 nautical miles averaging 6.8 knots.

Great Sunset photo off the back of the boat today.
