Sailing to the Bahamas Offshore Passage to Charleston Escape 24

Sailing south to Florida and the Bahamas, we leave Coquina Yacht Club head down the ICW a few miles to Barefoot Marina in North Myrtle Beach where Daniela flies down to visit for Thanksgiving dinner. We meet back up with Mike who’s been living aboard and sailing his 30ft wooden boat single handed up and down the east coast for the past 10 years. We sail through the night to Charleston and come in with the cargo ships as the sun comes up.
