Once more...

Having another go at the coastal trip this weekend. Heading down to Cedar Island for tonight, camping near the ferry terminal, and then heading off for three days. With the forecast as it is, I thought to reverse the trip originally planned, heading down the Sound to Drum Inlet, punching out and up the coast, surfing through Okracoke Inlet and then back down to Cedar Island. With the wind rotation of E-SE-W-SW-N forecasted over the three days, I should get some decent winds astern or abeam (bearing in mind that the map above is tilted NW).

Catch you all on my return...

Did you make the trip? A friend and I sailed up Core Sound from Harker's Island Friday, stayed south of Drum Inlet. Then on to anchorages at Wainwright Island, Racoon Island, Oriental and Beaufort (via the ICW), then back to Harkers Island Wednesday. Great trip. All kinds of weather. Beautiful water and fantastic skies. I can see why you like the area. Can't wait to start planning the next trip.
