Out for a short sail today with both the Pilgrim and the oldest daughter (also co-builder and member of SPARTINA original crew) on board. I should have been home packing, checking gear but with a perfect forecast we had to get out. Sailing without humidity, now there's an idea.
Shorter sail than usual, back to the house to wash the boat down, heading to Hatteras (staying in Buxton without a hurricane nearby, there's another great idea). Catching an early ferry to Ocracoke tomorrow to see how the good folks down there are doing.
Some boats heading south on the ICW already, including ADVENTURESS of Falmouth, England. A beautiful boat, I believe it to be the 1955 German built Philip Rhodes R27 mentioned here. Very, very elegant.
