Thinking about sailing trips for next year.....
Spring is completing the Delmarva circumnavigation by sailing from Chincoteague to Cape Charles and then Tangier Sound. A short trip with a straight line measurement of a little over 150 miles. Bruce and I are looking at tides so we can part of it outside of the barrier islands of the Eastern Shore.
Fall would be a longer trip, maybe a couple of weeks of solo sailing. Starting at Elizabeth City on the Pasquotank River, heading south down the Alligator River to Pamlico Sound and Cape Lookout, then Core Sound back to Pamlico Sound, Ocracoke Island, Roanoke Island and - if time allows - maybe a little more exploration of Albemarle Sound. Possibly early October when the fishing is good and the weather is cooler. Something to think about this winter.
