Re: ICW from VA to FL

I did the ICW northward from Florida to the Chesapeake this summer. I'm glad I did it just to have seen it. I jumped in and out quite a bit. When I go south next I will probably go outside most or all of the way. Inside was neat to see but tiresome in a sailboat with 50 ft air draft and 5 ft draft. Lots of narrow and shallow water in the Carolinas and Virginia between Norfolk and Cape Fear. Not much scenery, other than swamps, which are pretty but can get old after a few days. Plenty of places to anchor without trouble.

I recommend checking out the Salty Southern Cruiser's Network for up to date info on shoaling and closures.

Keep us posted as you go!
It's my happy pill
