back home

Back home after a great trip. Great sailing as always with Bruce, great sailing with our friends Paul and Dawn.
Rented a car and retrieved the cars and trailers from Potters Marine, hauled out the boats at New Bern. Lots of gear to clean and sort out, lots of photos and notes to go through.

This photo is from day four heading from Oriental to the Swash, probably one of the most interesting days of the trip. Twelve hours and forty nautical miles. Light wind, no wind, strong wind. The Neuse River, a couple of canals, a couple of bays, narrow channels on the sound. Sailing down-wind wing and wing, up-wind close hauled. A thunderstorm with lightning that came closer that we would have liked. Very exciting. That was typical of the trip, lots of variety with wind, water and weather.

We'll start sorting through the photos tomorrow after we clean the gear and hope to be posting some daily logs in a few days.

We did some sightseeing along the way and arrived home at about 4pm.

What a great 8 days of sailing it was! Looking at our 700 photos and GPS/SPOT tracks now. Wow...
