Weather: Partly sunny, windy, high 40s
Highlights: Left Charleston Harbor Marina at 7AM, headed SW (145 deg), with goal of reaching Bahamas in 60 hours, averaging 7 knots. Northwest winds were stronger than predicted (30 knots), and waves much bigger than predicted (15-20 foot), so had a rough first day. Logged 217 miles in 1st 24 hours, with top speeds over 18 knots surfing down some waves. Dolphins playing right on our bow at times - must have thought it all fun and games. 1st night watch spent huddled inside with a visit every 30 minutes to the helm to check AIS and make necessary course adjustments.
