I'm on your tail, buddy...

Left Hilton Head this morning, beautiful day outside up to Charleston, laid up at Isle of Palms marina... Sounds like we'll both be running up the Ditch for the next day or two with the NE breeze forecast, I'll keep an eye out for you...

Boat is a Hunter 41 named EXIT STRATEGY, will probably wind up around MB tomorrow night, Wrightsville the next, then Morehead/Beaufort by Friday... Hope to see you along the way...

Re: Headed North...

Sounds like you're just a day or so behind me. Today was spent fighting hard tides and wind on the nose, so I only made 30 miles. With luck, maybe 50 to 60 tomorrow. Look for that fat bodied Morgan 33 O.I. Saturday's Child somewhere on the horizon.

Cheers,

Gary

My timing is lucky with the tides, I should be able to catch some of the flood up Winyah Bay & Waccamaw, the ebb out of Little River Inlet, and the flood up the Cape Fear River, we shall see...

If I do catch you, I'll try to keep our wake to a minimum going by... (grin)

Re: Headed North...

I'll wave at you as you pass Southport, NC. Send me a PM if you need to stop for provisions or anything, I'm working nights and available for taxi service during the day.

Re: Headed North...

Gary,
The weather models are looking pretty abysmal up here for this weekend, so find a good pub & settle in for a couple days...

Did you go inside through GA or outside? If you went inside, I want the details.

Cheers, G

Re: Headed North...

I'm trying to wrap my head around your experience of having cruised all winter in beautiful weather and are now on a passage home for the sailing season. Jealous!!

My boat is exploded into so many parts right now, it looks like a chandlery, not a sailboat. Launch delayed a week. Going in the first week of April.

Re: Headed North...

Bypassed most of Georgia, exited to the ocean just above Jekyll Island, went about 12 to 20 miles offshore, good sailing until just after sundown, then the winds kicked up quite a bit, 8 to 9 foot following seas and really tight intervals, probably less than 7 seconds, very difficult to hold a course at times. Finally, about 3 a.m., hooked up to the harness and went topside, lowered the main, the jib had already been furled, did a quick and dirty sailfold to be on the safe side, and motored through the night. Made about 168 miles during that stretch, came inside above Beaufort, SC, spent the rest of the day putting the boat back together from the pounding, and of course, getting some much needed sleep. Been motor-sailing since then. Just too narrow in most locations to sail, plus the tide has been against us for much of the days.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Headed North...

Nice jump Gary, good that you no longer have Georgia on your Mind

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Headed North...

Gary we have made it to Hiltion Head today but will be here a few days while the 1st mate makes a trip by car to NC. Its also going to be real cold the next few days anyways. Hope you stay warm.
We were making 50+ miles a day but that was going from day break to dusk, so a few days off is going to feel good to this old man, I just can't keep up with you younguns.
