Edisto Island...

Ahoy!
Last Friday a friend and I sailed outside to Edisto Island from Hilton Head Island, and yesterday we sailed home. The winds and weather were absolutely perfect. It's 43 nm each way, and took 6.5 hours outbound, 8 hours inbound. It was my first point-to-point sail on the Atlantic... can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was...

Anyway, I got a three short video clips to share with you all. The second one is kind of messed up, as my buddy took it and he isn't familiar with my camera. I posted it because it's about all we took. I have a fourth video, but my buddy has his shirt off, and it might scare young children.

Yep - that's what it's all about sailhog, looked like you guys had a calming experience . . . especially with no yacking wimen aboard (g).



Man, I miss sailing offshore in the Atlantic Ocean.

Bubb, TrueBlue:
Big fun it was. Love sailing with the kids, but it's nice not having to worry about their safety for a change. That alone makes it an entirely different experience. Can't wait to get out there again...

Thanks for sharing the videos though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SD,
I used to have a grill, but the first time I used it was below. Orange-hot coals drisled through the grate and onto the carpet. The boat caught on fire, and I haven't used it since. Seems like a serious design flaw if you ask me. They should design a grill that attaches to the stern rail so that the ash falls into the water. Oh well. Nobody listens to ol' Sailhog anymore.

Glad to hear you had a good, and safe, time. You forgot to mention how the anchoring went though

Looked like fun! It looked in the vids like there was a great wind. What was it blowing? You make pretty good speed?

Very cool, SH!

And the mason thought CD was nuts for lining his cockpit with kiln bricks and turning it into a bbq pit. I hear he used the wheel pilot for a rotisserie motor.
