Cruisers join cruising clubs for the comraderie of cruising, and in the Lowcountry waters the anchorages are plentiful. Church Creek. Hamlin Sound. Steamboat Creek. Cooper River. Toogadoo. Moise Island. In November 2017 the Cruising Club of Charleston enjoyed their annual cruise to Moise Island. It’s a very special place, filled with memories. Until next year, we’ll just have to live with our Moise Island memories and make more elsewhere.
The 2017 Georgetown Wooden Boat Show this past weekend marked 24 years of showcasing beautiful wooden boats and one of South Carolina’s prettiest seaport towns.
This was our first year to cruise to the show, but it certainly won’t be our last! Dock space is always tight during the show weekend, and we planned to drive to the event, until 5:04PM last Thursday when we got the call from Harborwalk Marina, telling us a slip had just become available. At 1PM on Friday, we cast off the lines and set out on our fastest time ever to Georgetown.
Bear in mind that “fastest” is a relative term when talking about a single screw trawler like “Slow Dance,” but it was fast for us. Heck, we even saw 17.2 knots a few of times when wind and tide cooperated.
Since you can click the above link and learn more about the show, I’m just sharing some photography on this post. I would recommend the show to anyone with an appreciation for boats, wooden boats, good food, new friends, and good times in a quaint, seaport town.
