Just started back on the sailboat. Moved my Tarttan 27 yesterday. Boy I would like to sell that one so I can dedicate my time to My Cal 34. Oh well it was still nice being on the water yesterday even if it just a 1 mile trip.

I'm sailing out of Charleston. I'll be sailing this weekend but we're not headed up your way.

Hey SC sailors.  I am trying to get out this Memorial Day weekend, do some off-shore sailing, and overnight anchor behind Bird Island just inside the Little River Inlet.  Any one else considering being in the area?

S/V Shelia's TimeOut Too is docked in North Myrtle Beach SC. I get over from Augusta GA about every month and usually get out the Little River Inlet for a day or three sail.

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"
