Coastal SC, GA, FL Sailor

Hi SailNetters,

I'm Steve from Statesboro, GA. I've been sailing since I was 16 - 42 years now! Whew! It's been great. Started on HobieCats in Choctawhatchee Bay (Ft Walton Beach, FL)- then a Sunfish - a Banshee (miss that one she was fast!), another Hobie - the 18... a Hunter 170 and most recently I've started refitting a 1975 Chrysler 22.

I also windsurf and paddlesurf.... love being on the water.

My GF and I sail mostly along the Savannah and Charleston coasts.

Here's a shot of the Chrysler 22 "Princess of Tides" on her re-launch in the Stono River in Charleston.

Welcome sbonham, Stono River inlet is one of my favorites, especially when it's blowing out of the south. Give a shout if you find your way down around St. Augustine, Scott

Thanks Scott. I've not sailed in the St Aug area. But would like to. I understand too that the beaches there are very shallow at low tide so it's a great windsurfing location?

Can you park near the beach - access for carry the windsurfing gear is a major factor as to where we sail. Any grassy rigging areas nearby?

Thanks,
Steve

Steve, You can drive on the beaches here, but there are no grassy rigging areas near the beach. Any areas with grass contain sea oats, which are protected. Matansas Inlet, to the south ,has standing waves that rival those of Stono Inlet. There is a great anchorage there on the ICW, but no access to the ocean due to a fixed bridge. You can windsurf back and forth ,though. There is a ramp located just to the north , at Devil's Elbow Campground . Nice clean Chrysler, by the way.
