Hey Winebargain... Left Deltaville Fri the 8th, laying up a couple days in Elizabeth City to wait out the weather
before crossing the sound. Northers are kicking up (typical for this time of year) and it's been blowing half to full gale since Sunday.
Dismal Swamp route
was well protected but shallow this time of year (6-8ft) with a couple of lumps... With the North East gales yesterday, water
blowing out of the river made the first 10th mile out of South Mills lock scary shallow, but ok once you hit Turner Cut.
issues on the Virginia Cut route but Curituck Sound was forecast
at 5-7' yesterday which means I would have had to layup
somewhere less interesting than E' City. All depends on weather
, and expectations...
Keep an eye out for the Solitaire as you head
down. I will be traveling slow, and anchored up most nights. (S/V Solitaire Sailing Off The Edge | Home
Have a good trip and dress warm
