We staged ourselves to be just north of the Isle of Palms as we had been watching and reading about the groundings of sailboats in the area. We spent the morning having a nice breakfast and enjoying more coffee than usual. We knew that low tide was to be about 10:15 and we wanted to approach as the tide was coming back up.
We finally made contact with the Caliber that was in our anchorage “Nauti Cali”. She is a 40 foot and a 2006. Her second owners are from Canada and we hope to catch up with them at some point as they are heading to the Bahamas as well.
Then we heard the dreaded call.....”securite’ securite’ securite’ .....this is the sailing vessel Nauti Cali and we are aground at 117A”. We throttle back and listen to the chatter and as we are slowly making our way the sheriff comes by to let us know to stay far to the right side of the channel almost hugging the shore. We heard within fifteen minutes that Nauti Cali had gotten off the bottom and were heading on to their anchorage in Charleston.
So we continued down the skinny channel and hold our breath as we see the numbers and just as the sheriff said, we hugged the shore and came thru on the rising tide just fine. We continued on to the Charleston City Dock anchorage and set the anchor by 1:30. Once the anchor was down we dropped the dinghy and took Jaxon for his first ride to shore.s. We called for an Uber and made our way to the Harris Teeter to pick up some veggies and fruits.
Back at Ti Amo we have dinner and then wait for our email regarding weather so that we can plan for our next couple of days. When it hit the inbox we both anxiously read it. It looks like we will be offshore Tuesday, Wednesday and come in Thursday. We would like to get as far as we can as the weather has been unpredictable and extremely chilly this trip.
