I am a soldier currently serving in Afghanistan. I am planning a trip this summer. I will be home around the first of June and will take the next two months off and cruise
to points south. I have been sailing on and off since I was 17 ( I am now 49). I left Aberdeen, Maryland
last March where I had a 23' O'Day and sailed extensively on the Chesapeake Bay
. I bought a 30' Hunter
when I was home this past September. It sits all alone at the Pecan Grove Marina in Oriental, NC.
Can anyone point me to the best place to plan this trip? I have been in the "Ditch" on many occasions, including sailing a 28' O'Day from Holden beach back up to Aberdeen. Great trip. My questions range from "where to find the listing of inlets that I can go outside and back in" to "can I plan the passage
from Oriental, NC to Key West
including distances and inlets (I know weather
is my first concern as that will dictate time) and where to find an easy way to plot this"?
