Ocean Voyage

16 April 2012 | Hilton Head, SC
We rose early and rode the high tide up Jekyll Creek with no trouble in the areas of shoaling we were warned about. Then we exited the ICW and motored out St. Simons Sound and into the ocean. When we turned north we had 66 miles to go to Tybee Roads Inlet. The weather forecaster got this day right as the predicted moderate winds and seas and sunshine were exactly what we got. Except for a dozen fishing trawlers as we left St Simons, we motored all day with almost no other boats around us until we got to Tybee Roads inlet. There we encountered a huge container ship exiting the inlet as we were going in. Tybee Roads inlet goes into Savannah, but there is also a branch of it that goes into the sound behind Hilton Head Island. We took that one and are now docked in Harbour Town Marina which is part of the beautiful Sea Pines Resort. The dockhand who met us at our slip to help us tie up and plug in then welcomed us with a complimentary bottle of Harbour Town's red or white wine. We then enjoyed the wine while relaxing in our cockpit after a long day in the ocean. We are staying here tonight and tomorrow night. The Captain
