The Grand Scheme: s/v Symphony: Back in the USA! @ Sail Blogs
 
We are back on the mainland. We arrived here at about 1500 and tied up at Scorpion's New Port Marina, cleared in with Customs, and went out to dinner. We're all tired, but not completely thrashed and we'll be starting our return northwards rather rapidly. Since we didn't go all the way to Charleston, it will probably take us a week to cover what two days of sailing would have done but, given the forecast timing, equipment failures, and personal comfort, it was the right choice for us. One of the fun things about our passage is that Leslie has discovered that she likes being a lookout and keeping watch (She's good at spying small boats on the horizon, too!). Overall, it was a very enjoyable passage on beautiful water in mild conditions. We ended up motorsailing almost the whole way because of light winds so it was noisier than we like, but this way we got to have the fun of refueling at sea! <a href="http://www.sailblogs.com/member/symphony/?xjMsgID=10938">Direct Link</a> <p><a href="http://www.sailr.com/news20067.html">Comments</a></p>
