Re: Brunswick Landing Marina,Ga.

No other marinas. We did anchor out a few times. One good anchorage is off St. Simon Island, near Morningstar Marina. Quite a tide runs there.

Another quite nice anchorage we found, was off the...

Re: Florida winds

Don't forget tides and currents. I don't recall which bridge it was, but the tide was against us and we barely made it through (say less than 1/2 knot boatspeed). Was somewhere south of...

Re: Florida winds

It's a constant cycle really. Before a cold front, expect winds to go west before going north when the front hits. Maybe a lull in winds after a day or two, then going strong east to southeast. ...
