Myrtle Beach to Winyah Bay

Didn’t leave the marina until 8:30 this morning. The trip was uneventful except the weather finally turned nice — sunny and mid-70s for most of the day. Finally peeled off the long underwear.

SOG-9.1

When the winds and tides are in sync, everything is right with the world.

The interesting part of this stretch is the Waccamaw River, a winding body of water where you don’t see any signs of human life for what seems hours on end. For the first four hours, Delta Blues fought the tides, barely making over 5 knots. But then the tide changed and it was a downhill slide the last two hours (see photo).

Anchored in Winyah Bay. This is rather exposed to the elements, but a fine anchorage nonetheless. Grilled a tuna steak and potatoes.
