Given the latest forecast, with winds from the eastern quadrant, first East then NE, which is good for you, you can go inshore with at high tide or a incoming tide, on a beam reach possibly the entire sail, even when the wind veers to the NE, after the turn to the NW at the Bay Reach section of the channel.
That's what I was thinking. If I leave at 4-5am I'll get to port Royal sound right before slack high tide. Only thing is leaving Warsaw sound in Savannah. I would be leaving at an outgoing tide with winds coming from the east. How "bad" will it be?
