Notes from the LYNX-Charleston to St. Augustine, Day 2
Posted by Tall Ships America on November 10, 2010
This morning finds Lynx bobbing along just past the Savannah River entrance, off the Georgia coast. Winds are light from the north, and we are steering to parallel the coast, keeping between five and ten miles offshore. Yesterday’s conundrum of going too fast is not a problem this morning, as we are cruising along at just around two knots. Right now we have the jib, stays’l, fores’l, fore tops’l, starboard split course, and reefed mains’l set and things on deck are quiet and calm. It’s a beautiful day, sunny with few clouds in the sky, evidence of the high pressure system which is sitting overtop of the area, bringing these calm northerly winds.
At 1700 GMT, we were in position:
31 degrees 55.321 North
080 degrees 43.445 West
Fair winds to all!
