Re: Charleston to St. Simons

Maybe San Simon posted in this forum because she or he is a pirate and is looking for tips on how to avoid the authorities? However, I've not yet seen any trip reports from other pirates on the forum. Aaaarrr.

If you know anything about St Simons Island pirates have been huge problem. Granted that was some time ago. ;->

PBzeer Couple of tips, for future posts.

One, post in the proper forum. This should have been in General Discussion proper, instead of the Piracy Forum.

Second, on coastal trips, you should say whether you intend to go on the ICW or offshore, or offshore depending on weather.

You'll get more timely and helpful answers that way.

For myself, weather permitting I would definitely go from Charleston to Hilton Head Island offshore (actually, I'd do the whole thing offshore). You can stop at the north end of Hilton Head, or go on down to Savannah. Haven't run the ICW from Hilton Head to St Simons, so I don't really know much about it, other than what's in the guide books.

MarioG Your talking a distance of about 220 miles which might take you as much as 5 days if your traveling down the ICW. I wouldn't travel much at night. The currents change often depending on what part of the ICW your on so your speeps will very greatly. With our C-26 we averaged 4 to 5 knots. My best advice would be Find the 5th edition of The Intracoastal Waterway Chartbook put out by International Marine/McGraw-Hill it will tell you were the good anchorages and marinas are.

Charleston to St. Simons

We are taking an Ericson 27 from Charleston to SSI this coming weekend - any tips on tides, marinas, currents from those who have made the run?
