It will be two of us. If the weather is good, I want to go outside as much as possible. Although I don't mind to get some experience going thru ICW and get struck here and there.
From Norfolk to Oriental NC is less than 190 nm sailing outside, so it will be less than 40 hours non stop. The bad part is going into the inlet at night, or we can skip Oriental to head to Beaufort.
We can't afford the time to sail to Fort Pierce Fl in one trip, so we must fly back home and stay for a week or two and then go back to pick up the trip again. So getting to a city where easy to fly in and out is a plus. I beleive our wives will be joining with us when we get to Charleston or Savannah.
