All Good Things
22 June 2013 | Shelter Cove Marina, Hilton Head
... must come to an end. That's okay; we're ready to be home.
And of course, we're looking forward to a fine offshore sail home. Winds are forecast 10-15kts out of the South. No tropical systems to worry about. So at 0900 tomorrow We'll cast off from our berth here in Shelter Cove Marina (yes, Hilton Head again). I've decided to enter the Atlantic on the south side of Hilton Head from Calibogue Sound to Tybee Roads sea lane. The route is not as stable as Port Royal Sound to the north, but it will shave several hours off of our trip home. I've scouted it on the charts and talked to the locals.
This morning, we had a nice sail down the May River to Calibogue Sound. Once in the sound, we turned on the engine and motored against the spring tide current for two hours to Shelter Cover Marina, arriving about noon. We've enjoyed a relaxing day, riding bikes and exploring a different part of the island.
My next post will probably be after we've arrived home in Little River. For those of you who follow our SPOT, the link is, as always, on the right side of this page. Remember, it's the link labeled SPOT, not the map (which doesn't work well).
