Ah yes, sailing the North Carolina coast. Some of my most memorial sailing has to include sailing a Tasar off Sunset Beach amongst a school of dolphins that were so close you could reach out and touch 'em. On a different occasion, it was sailing with a friend on Lasers in 15' plus waves off Wrightsville.
There was a hurricane offshore, several hundred miles to the east, and the rollers were so big that when my friend crested a wave and surfed into the trough, his mast would practically disappear from sight. Spooky for sure, but one hell of a ride. That was years ago, in my youth.
All the best on your Annapolis leg, and happy exploration of the NC coast.
