  • Colorful coastal history and legends
  • Tips on enjoying the natural and historical wonders of the region


“Now in a revised sixth edition, Cruising Guide to Costal South Carolina and Georgia is an in-depth guide to every last marina, anchorage, creek, nook, and cranny along the South Carolina and Georgia coastline. Author Claiborne Young has applied his years of experience boating in sailcraft and powerboats and personally visited every body of water referenced in this local’s-eye-view guide. Maps and black-and-white photographs add a visual touch to the richly detailed descriptions sure to appeal to armchair travelers as well as boat travelers. Cruising Guide to Coastal South Carolina and Georgia is a travel guide, not a how-to guide; the reader’s familiarity with principles of nautical operation and safety is presumed, and the main focus is upon the marvelous sights, sounds, and history of the South Carolina and Georgia coast. Enthusiastically recommended for area boaters, whether residents or vacationers.” —Midwest Book Review
“The first feeling one gets upon perusing Claiborne Young’s Cruising Guide to Coastal South Carolina and Georgia is that the author must have lived here, so complete and detailed are his descriptions of our local waterways.” —The Island Packet (Hilton Head Island, SC)
“This guide sometimes referred to as the ‘sailor’s bible’ to the Waterway takes readers through every inch of that channel. Young sketches every marina, every anchorage, and every cove along the channel in precise detail.” —Florence [SC] Daily News
