Today was a day to separate the men from the boys. I hope that we fell in to the former. We got underway early, and enjoyed some great sailing as we started from the North Edisto to Post Royal Sound. The winds were good. So good, in fact, that we thought we'd like to run out the spinaker. The problem was that the spinaker had a tear. Bob and I tried to patch it, but we seen to have on future as sail makers. The patch lasted about five minutes. We still had a great sail though, until we hit Port Royal Sound. We had to in under power, but discovered the engine had cooling issues. At one point, we could not restart it, but we were able to get it working to get to Beaufort under our own power. It was a trying day, but we had the right crew to see us to port. Fortunately, we had a berth available near where Bob's father lives, so we can get some work done on things tomorrow, as well as enjoy
some of Beaufort's many offerings.
