FL to CT Day 15
Beaufort, SC to Charleston, SC
We pulled the anchor this morning at 0715 and headed over to the main Street Dock just south of the Beaufort Downtown and docked for Susan to take Beecha for a quick walk.
Beecha finished with her walk we departed at approximately 0745. “Serendipity” had departed and had 45 minute lead. We had made plans to meet in Charleston for the night.
Today was an awesome day of cruising… sunny and very little wind… a little on the cool side when we left at 54 degrees but it warmed up to about 78 degrees by mid afternoon. Moderate boat traffic… but it seems like the trend is mostly northbound boats.
We had another yo-yo current day with lowest speed I noticed was 4.5 knots and 8.9 knots being the highest. The current was maybe a little more on our bow than helping us but fairly evenly split today.
The winds did pick up a little just before we anchored saw a few 20 knot gusts but steady around 10-12 knots… will make for a nice breeze… and a cool one… low tonight predicted to 61 degrees.
We were securely anchored at approximately 1630 at N32°45.482’, W081°00.603’. We traveled for 8.75 hours covering 55.2 nm averaging 6.3 knots. “Serendipity” anchored just east of us.
