Hi Will,,just posted on your other thread about Wilkerson bridge. I much prefer the Pamlico sound route
because I can sail, among other things. I'm often single
handing so it's less time at the helm
I don't know your schedule, but I strongly recommend you stop in at Beaufort
,then sail out to cape lookout for a night or five. Once ready to leave, you can sail across onslow bay to wrightsville beach if the weather
is your way. Time it for the falling tide and you can fly down the cape fear and either put right back out to sea for an overnight to Charleston, or stop in at a marina first. This is faster than going around frying pan, especially if you time it right. Have to watch the wind
though if riding the falling tide, as a contrary wind
in the cape fear can throw up some scary waves.
I generally sail from cape lookout overnight and make masonboro inlet at slack tide and first light, then inevitably catch the falling tide after making some way past some inlets into snows cut. This puts me out to sea by mid morning or noon, giving plenty of time to make charleston in daylight.
What kind of boat do,you have?
