Charleston, SC to Georgetown, SC
Florida to Rhode Island - Day 14
Departed from Charleston this morning at 0825... current at the Megadock is always fun to deal with and you try to leave at slack tide to avoid it... slack tide was at 1010 and we had about 8 hours to cruise to get to Georgetown... so not to arrive too late we left even with a fairly strong current on our stern... and we had to back out and around other boats... of course thinking about doing always it seems as if it will be harder than it actually is... and this was the case this morning... backed out and had no problems...smooth as silk... LOL
When we left the sun was shinning but as the day progressed it became overcast and soon we were traveling with thunderstorms all around us... never really got any heavy rain but we did have quite a bit of lightning... made for a boring day of cruising.
We arrived to Georgetown and docked at the city docks at 1625... N33º21.982', W079º17.085'.
8 hours of cruising for the day covering 58 nautical miles averaging 7.25 knots.
