Day 17 Sailing downriver to Fowler's Bluff

Sunday night at his campsite at mile 92,  SOS took an hour to rig his boat for sailing.  Monday morning,  he was glad.  "Doing 8 mph right now!!!  Should have put it up ASAP. yesterday!"

73 miles down the river,   19 miles from the Gulf

From 7:30am to 11:00pm  SOS sailed/paddled from mile 92 down to mile 19

Most of the day SOS trailed by about 13 miles LRock and CrazyRussian,  who were paddling their classic aluminum canoe.   The gap gradually narrowed and then when LR and CR stopped at a Fowlers Bluff boat ramp (mile 16.8) to switch from canoe to I-20 catamaran.

LRock and CrazyRussian  switching back to the I-20 catamaran at 8:00pm

SOS caught up with LRock and CrazyRussian at 11:28pm
