We made it to Georgetown, SC!
From Hilton Head Island, we went to Charleston, SC, where we spent the night at St John’s Island Yacht Center.
We had some heavy rain overnight, and in the early morning, it was pretty windy with a 1ft chop and we thought we might have to stay the day. But, by 8:00, it had calmed down, so we cast off for the Charleston City Marina, picked up 270 gallons of fuel ($4.95 a gallon), and headed toward Georgetown.
The trip to Georgetown was uneventful. We had plenty of water, and aside from pushing against a 3-knot current most of the way, which kept our speed to 6-7 knots, it was clear sailing.
We arrived in Georgetown right at 5:30, got tied up, and breathed a sigh of relief. Cruising with only one engine is stressful! Monday morning, the mechanics show up and start working on the boat.
