There were several things I could have been doing today but I was content to relax and do almost nothing.
I did sketch out a rough route for the June trip. This would go counter-clock-wise from Hobucken back to Hobucken (though I do need to talk to Shawn at Pate's Boatyard first). I've sketched in options for going by way of both the east and west ends of Cedar Island, the choice will probably be made by the wind. The sail from Cedar Island north would be my longest sail out of sight of land. The trip from Beaufort to Cape Lookout would be my first sail on the ocean.
Something to think about on a winter's day.
