Hilton Head Island: departure

Steve Earley got away just before official dawn this morning which was 6:45.  Now as I write at 12:20 in the afternoon he has reached the Savannah River.  Good progress.

I enjoyed his visit whose timing was impeccable.  He had fine weather from Charleston to Hilton Head, arrived here just before a front that brought two raw days of rain, and left at the beginning of what is forecast to be another perfect week.

I look forward to following the remainder of his cruise.  He is a fine man and a fine sailor, and I wish him a rewarding and uneventful sail.
