cape hatteras in february what gear should I bring?

Don''t know if anyone is still following this thread.....but just got back form the Chesapeake to Fort Lauderdale mission...

To recap, 36 hours ahead of the cold front left the Chesapeake and motored south outside the Outer Banks, rounded Hatteras in S:15-20, had a sleigh ride and a half to Point Lookout, ducked into Beaufort, and after that during frontal passage and subsequent blustery northerlies motored down the ditch to Cape Fear, then headed back out and made a bee line for Daytona.
Wore many layers of clothing. Some challenging sailing, but never anything extreme. Timing is everything.

Oscar.
