Bareboat North Carolina

Finally got around to our 7 day bareboat charter with Carolina Wind Yachting Center : Pacific Seacraft, Zodiac and Brokerage Boats out of Washington, NC on In Concert, their Saga 409 and had a GREAT TIME!
The company was terrific, the boat was in great condition, the beaches unbelieveable and the weather couldn't have been better.
First day we dashed 60 nm down the Pamlico and across the Sound to Ocracoke for 2 nights at Anchorage Marina, then a dash to Beaufort via ICW to anchor Town Creek overnight before heading off shore for an ocean day sail and then pulled into Lookout Bight for 2 nights. Next it was up the ICW for a quick stop at Oriental Harbor Marina before anchoring out last night in Bonner Bay off the Bay River.
DO NOT PASS ON THIS CRUISING AREA IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT SHALLOW WATER AND SHIFTING SHOALS. I thought I'd be looking at single digit depths after reading the cruising guides but there's way plenty of 10' to 20'+ water...and it's a soft bottom!
I think it just may be the best cruising area on the entire East coast! Can't say enough good things! ... and we didn't have time to stop at Bath, Belhaven and other historic ports o' call.
