We recently journeyed from Port of the Islands Marina just north of the Everglades in Florida to our home port of Bohicket Marina on Seabrook / Kiawah Island in South Carolina. On board we had two sailing experience charter guests looking to gain some offshore and nighttime sailing hours. Both had taken numerous ASA sailing courses and now wanted hands-on sailing adventures to complete their training and gain confidence to sail on their own.
