I just want to say hello to members of this website. I have asked a few questions and it was wonderful to get a reply. I bought a C&C
24' in June, 2010. The boat is in storage
in NJ and I hope to sail it down to my home in North Carolina
later this summer. I am not an experienced sailor but I plan on taking some lessons before I start the trip. So far I have been reading everything I can get my hands on from the local library on sailing. There is a lot of important information but I have been living on the coast for my entire life. I have had many experiences on the water
in power and sailboats. Many people might say I am crazy to make such a trip with so little actual sailing experience on my new boat. Maybe I can get some help here on the most dangerous things to take into consideration making a sailing trip from NJ to Morehead City
NC. Is there any reason a person cannot sail the ocean from the Chesapeak down past the Outerbanks to Morehead City
? Is it really that treacherous? How about the trip from Delaware Bay to the Chesapeak? There is a waterway from the upper part of the the Delaware Bay to the Chesapeak. Why would someone take this route
rather than sailing down the coast? I definately have many questions for anyone willing to listen.
