Victory Lap Week 4/8
Monday April 25, by 9:50am, we departed the Charleston Harbor Marina, heading north on the ICW.
We Anchored for the night at 5:30pm in Winyah Bay about 7 nm South of Georgetown, SC, which is our destination tomorrow. Continuing on would be a fight against the current making our arrival after sunset.
49 nautical miles traveled this day, 32 days to go to Tolchester Marina in Maryland. There are a few more stops up the East Coast staying in the warm weather, visiting family and friends and sharing a meal or two.
Tuesday April 26, the morning was spent polishing the stainless rigging as well as cleaning the galley. We are waiting for the current to slow down a bit as Trance will be fighting it all the way to Georgetown. Anchor was up by 11:30am, arrived in Georgetown by 1:40pm.
We spied an Island Packet in the Harborwalk Marina, so we had to go say hello. S/V Just Ducky, Linda and Mahlon Stauffer. As it turns out, they’ve been following our journey! They joined us for dinner at Rollin Local. It was a great evening!

Wednesday April 27, today was a lazy day spent on the boat.

Saturday April 30, arrived at the Southport Marina in NC by 12pm, later we walked to Dry Street Pub & Pizza for lunch.
