Looking for a ride in Charleston

I'll be in charleston this weekend thru next weekend, staying on a sailboat in ashley marina. Unfortunately, I can't take the boat out to go sail (long story). I know I won't be able to go all week without sailing however -- especially when I'm staying on a boat! Are there any members in the area who wouldn't mind some extra crew for a daysail or longer? It would be me and my wife, and we're of course willing to supply food and drinks to whomever could help us out. The sailing season has ended here on the Great Lakes -- how wonderful that it's still in full swing down south. If there's an oppurtunity, please PM or reply to the thread. Thanks!

Is the power of 2 hulls with you?

Hopefully, someone will step up that can offer you a ride in Charleston, but if not and you really want a sailing fix, there is a guy that does daysails on his Beneteau (40' or so) on Winyah Bay out of Georgetown. Its a bit of a drive, but its the only way to get on a sailboat for sure that I know of in that area. Last time I was down (August) he had brochures in all the hotel lobby dispensers and you can probably find him in the phone book. He picks up at the dock right in the main shopping district of Georgetown.

I wife and I grew up in upstate SC and now have family scattered between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. My brother owns a home about 1/2 way between Charleston and Georgetown, so we spend a good deal of time in that area. I have no affiliation with the guy doing the sailing trips, we just went out with him once since to check out sailing in that area -- it aint much compared to the Chesapeake -- but I still hope to retire in that area. I'd like to check out the sailing in Charleston also, but I expect I'll keep my boat on the Chesapeake.

Thanks midlife. I think this may be what your referring to?
Wallace Sailing Charters

Anyways, I am definitely curious about the sailing in the area as well.

Yep, that's the guy. If nothing else pans out its a pretty inexpensive way to get a short sail in.

Good Luck.

Try posting in the "Crew Wanted / Available" thread. You're more likely to get the response you want.

Good luck!

I am out of town this weekend and next on business travel. Let me look at my schedule this upcoming week and see if we can go out maybe on a late afternoon/evening sail. I keep my Catalina 30 over at Patriots Point.
