I would sail offshore
back and forth from St Simons and St Mary's inlets. I would also use Jekyll creek when needed but it's shallow, and it's a nice offshore
day sail from port to port. But there are many other options in close reach, like Savannah, Hilton Head
, or Charleston and other SC ports
. It's a great spot for various coastal hops, and also convenient to N Bahamas
. So my experience in GA involved a lot of sailing, nearshore, inlet to inlet.
Are you on the water
at Skidaway or would you sail out of thunderbolt or some other area marina?
I have very fond memories of winters in GA with my kids
when younger. If you asked them, they would say it was some of their favorite times on our old Cape Dory
30. We had friends with a historic home/property on Cumberland and that made the experience unique. But the island all by itself is huge, with all kinds of exploring, historic sites, and oystering, shrimping, whatever. Great bug free breezy anchorage on the sound, and more protected in the creek. Endless beach. That's not everyone's thing, but for us, the boat is all about access to nice coastal locations accessible only by boat. Cumberland is only one barrier isle, but it's a national seashore and has a great anchorage, convenient to a good inlet.
has great cruising in the winter in my experience.
