My wife and I are joining her family in Myrtle beach in a few weeks for a week-long vacation. We are staying at the Ocean Blue Resort, south end of Ocean Blvd. We are thinking about taking our Hobie 16, but I want to be sure that we will actually be able to use it. I've got a few questions and it would be great if some of the locals could chime in. I've sailed near there before in some Surfside regattas and have sailed in Garden City, but that was quite a few years ago.
1. Is there easy beach access near the Resort and if so, where?
2. Can boats be left on the beach overnight? (I know this is becoming an almost non-existent option all along the coast)
3. Is there going to be anyone sailing in the area around the first full week of August?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
