When Oasis left Sunbury Marina at 06:50, it was still a bit dark. The captain was eager to leave early. Today was going to be a longer day navigating on the ICW, a good 55 SM to do before arriving to the next port. It took over an hour for Oasis to get back at SM 620, where she had branch off the ICW.
The couple are always captivated by those gorgeous sunrises and today was no different.
The Captain was also trilled to see Oasis jib go up, even only if it was for a half hour. It speeded up the trip a bit.
For the last two days, it seems what are in sight are mostly marshland, trees, large body of water and today was the same and a lot more of it. Once in a while, Oasis would encounter small fishing boats and she came at a cross point with a large shrimp fishing vessel with her outriggers opened and this concerned the captain a bit. No way Oasis could cross that fishing vessel in the narrow channel of the ICW. The captain of the fishing vessel had the courtesy of letting Oasis proceed first before getting in the ICW himself. Jean Guy was relieved of the outcome.
At 15:30, Oasis was docked at the Morningstar Marina at Golden Island Marine, adjacent to St Simons Island. At this marina, they provided the sailors with a courtesy car which allowed the couple to visit around. So Jean Guy and Roselind drove around St Simons Island and also to Brunswick City.
