Re: Sailing from Little River Inlet, SC to Morehead City, NC

Always good to hear of a safe passage made according to plan. We tend to hear of the ones that go wrong.

BTW I think expecting to average 7 knts on a 33 ft is optimistic. 5 knts is more realistic.

I have a 44ft fast old lady and do my passage planning at 6 knts expecting to do a little better but over the years have rarely made a 7 knt average.
