Re: Headed North...

Sorry, Gary - it appears I misunderstood your question, sounds like you are thinking of departing from St. Simon's, right?

Unfortunately, that involves a considerable amount of losing a lot of ground back out to the SE, that's the problem with going back out any of the Georgia Sounds heading north, and St. Simon's is the worst - involving the greatest distance heading SE before you can turn the corner headed N... And, you do not want to cut that corner headed N, by much, anyway...

You might consider hanging at Fernandina until you get your weather... Did you visit Cumberland Island on your trip south? Wonderful spot, you could spend tomorrow exploring there, then depart from St, Marys Entrance the next day...

If you do go up to St. Simon's inside, you might continue heading up to Sapelo Sound, and out there instead... Sapelo is the one sound that trends somewhat to the NE... Don't attempt it with any significant swell running, however - though after a strong NW breeze, it should be pretty flat out there... The buoyage is widely spaced, and it's shallow a couple of miles off, but you'll be OK, and the charting thru there is pretty accurate...

Good luck...
