Charleston and Warmer Weather

Enjoying Charleston.

Enjoying warmer weather. The heaters aren't running. Hatches are open.

We could go sailing and see the Charleston Waterfront.

Wind out of the N meant a great beam reach across the harbor. We motored up the Ashley to see the mega-dock; we didn't think we could short tack against a current. Even if we had a crew of four or more to pull headsails around, beating into a current is not something Red Ranger does well.

We drifted down to Fort Sumter as the wind sort of died away. We tried to beat back up the Cooper river, but the current (3.2kt) was way faster than our ability to sail in light air.

Enjoyed a late Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, cranberries, sweet potatoes and a cold broccoli mushroom salad.
