Oriental to Ocracoke
I am making a trip from Oriental to Ocracoke Island the third week in May. I am planning on taking a week and meandering my way and taking a few days in different places. I will have my 12 year old nephew with me for the first few days who has never sailed before, so I am planning on making a few short stops at the beginning of the trip. My plan as of now is as follows:
Day 1: Oriental to Beaufort
Day 2: Beaufort to Cape Lookout for a night out at anchor
Day 3: Cape Lookout to Harkers Island to drop of 12 year old nephew and then on to Ocracoke
This is where my questions begin. Assume I am leaving Harkers island by lunch on day 3. Assume I have 5 days to wonder from Harkers Island to Ocracoke and then back to Oriental. I would love advice or ideas as to recommended anchorages, marinas, and days to spend in different places with time to explore. Take in mind I would like to see the old reliable spots, and also some of the hidden ones that anyone might know.
I am in a 28' Lancer that only draws 3 feet, so water depth is not usually a problem. Thanks in advance for any help.
