So I live in Beaufort, SC.
I want to do my first overnight singled handed sail this fall. I was thinking of going out the Port Royal sound at dark and heading out into the darkness " well maybe a bright moon lit knight" then back. Do you see any trouble in this for my first trip? I am knot sure how far the Gulf stream is from the coast. i sure dont want to find it the hard way. I will be in my 30 C&C MK1 with a 16 hp dependable Yanmar diesel. I have a good chart plotter and know the area well. I have sailed this area all summer and some last fall.
let me know what you think.
