Last night was one of the best sails ever! The full moon gave us plenty of light, and the wind was solid enough to allow us to make 8 knots up the coast. By this morning we were anchoring off Geargetown (see pictured the un-named island where we buried our pirate loot). After breakfast and a brief rest, we left with the tide without making landfall in Georgetown. The winds were not favorable, so we were under power most of the day. This evening, we slipped through the channels and cuts to McClellansville (not named for the famous Civil War general). While we did not land there, we did a little tour by boat, and talked to a few interesting local fisherman, and a fellow who is kayaking up the coast. We have anchored near town, and were forced to put up the mosquito netting since the flies were so bad. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be the pits, but we will continue back to
Charleston to get Bill to the airport.
