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.
