Underrway – offshore hop

Headed out the Cape Fear River inlet this morning to do a coastal hop. Cold front came through last night and now have NE winds. was forecast to be 15-20 kts; had a good sail out this morning, but wind has subsided to 5-10 this afternoon – so we’re motoring now. It’s forecast to pick up to 15-20 gusting 25 tonight… we’ll see. Will continue along the coast as long as it remains comfortable. Possible bail out points include Georgetown SC, Charleston SC, Hilton Head SC, Savannah GA, Brunswick SC, St Mary’s SC. If we continue to St Mary’s, it will be a Tue PM arrival (2 days from now).
