The inlets, St. Mary's and then Port Royal Sound are wide, deep and easy to navigate in any weather. Lucky for Island Spirit and Cutter Loose, we started with 15-17 knots of beam winds and 2-3 foot seas, diminshing late. This made for a great night on the ocean, departing at 6 pm for an easy passage of 20 hours. Arriving Beaufort SC around 2 pm, we relaxed and caught up on some sleep and then joined our good friends of SP Catspaw for a fun dinner ashore and a "Team Reunion."

So it was a a great night to be back together. From Beaufort we ran towards Charleston, SC, where we anchored 17 miles short of the city for a peaceful night on anchor in Church Creek.
Tomorrow we will make Charleston, SC, a town we really enjoy.....
