Go Labatt... the wind is a bit light for his boat...but nevertheless... beats sitting here watching the snow storm approach.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That's the last one from me tonight. It's been useful to show the bride how to tie the Spot data together with buoy , WX radar and other available info to monitor our progress. Gives her a bit more piece of mind she says.

Good Night,

John

He is gonna get crunched a bit soon...small craft warnings are up and he will have 25-30 on his nose tomorrow with building seas. I would be turning towards Georgetown at this point despite the current conditions. Storm warnings just a bit north of him off of NC so it is gonna be close to really bad conditions. I hope he is checking the weather as it is moving in faster than it was predicted to and the warning were not up this AM. Nothing the boat can't handle...but still more than they are used to.
Turning up and in to Southport (Bald Head Island) is also a option to avoid it completely from where he is now.
I just sent him an e-mail but don't know if he can receive out where he is.


TONIGHT
VARIABLE WINDS 10 KT OR LESS BECOMING SW AND
INCREASING TO 20 TO 30 KT...HIGHEST NW. SEAS 4 TO 7 FT...HIGHEST

WED

..EXCEPT E OF 1000 FM BUILDING TO 8 TO 12 FT...HIGHEST NE.

WED NIGHT

I have been watching the wx progress as well Cam. He's about 16 nm SE of Bald Head about now so he may have a cell signal but you never know.

We did a similar trip this same time last year and ran day and night for 4 1/2 days just staying ahead of one front after another pushing behind us. We somehow managed to stay 50 - 75 miles ahead of them each day but we were finally caught down in Melbourne, FL on New Years Eve.

Check out dockage at the Charleston Maritime Center. We docked there while I helped build the "Spirit of South Carolina". It is a friendly, affordable portal to the heart of the city. Five minute walk to groceries & pubs.

Looks like they have started to turn toward Georgetown, or at least back towards shore.

He has now made a big turn...could be pointing at Little River inlet or turning further and running into Southport or maybe just taking a long tack in towards shore now that the winds are out of the southwest. Wind now gusting to 30 and steady at 20.

Latest forecast has it building and gale warning is up from Cape Fear North...thankfully he is past that.

Little River was in good shape when I went out it this past spring.
