We made Thunderbolt Marina in Savannah GA around 12:30 pm today. Jack has it more like 121:15 pm. Either way we’re continuing to make great time. Departure from the Wye River was just 9 days ago and we’re now well over half way home. We’re also making some changes. We’ll take a little breather here and do a partial crew change. Jack’s wife Sue is coming up with our friends Jim and Binnie Luciano. Sue will continue the trip home with Jack and I will be attending a wedding in Dallas. If all goes well Sue and Jack will probably bring the boat home the rest of the way. Just in case they want a relief team Robin and I will be on call until they pull in to Tarpon Bay. I’ve had a great trip down with Jack and got to do a trip I’ve always wanted to do.
So now we’ll spend a couple of days relaxing and visiting with Jim and Binnie then the trip will continue with Sue and Jack. I think Jack and I were very compatible as co-captains and at the same time I’m also very certain he’ll much prefer Sue the rest of the way. See you guys back at TBYC

Below are a couple of photos of the thunderheads forming the day we arrived at our anchorage at White Side Creek:
We got a LOT of real nice sunsets.
Yours truly after I finally shaved:
I can’t remember which bridge this was. It was a real treat for me to go right around all those sailboats without waiting for an opening.
