Looking for DaySail Ideas - North Carolina

Hello,

I am new to Sailnet (as of today, actually). I own a 22 foot Bayliner Buccaneer and consider myself of an advanced-beginner skillset. I classify this as having full comfort on lakes in North Carolina, but I have no ocean-voyage or sound experience.

I am looking for that all-important 'first-trip' out into the sound, so am looking for input and ideas for a day-sail; from destination X to destination Y and back again.

Are there such trips you could recommend? Also, anything in particular I should be wary of or be sure to have onboard would be helpful.

Much appreciated.

Wish I could be more helpful, but I am new to the area as well. My day sailing is off my dock into the Neuse River and back home. It really depends on where you are launching from. From Beaufort you can go to Cape Lookout. From Oriental you can go to New Bern or vice versa. From Little Washington you can go to Bellhaven. Or you can just spend a day on the water and return where you started.

There are many shallows in the bay and a good GPS with map and depth finder is highly recommended, but a small boat can always find a way.

Have a great sail.

Thank you both for the kind responses. Since I live in the central part of the state, I truly can launch from anywhere, as the boat will be on the trailer (ie - have boat, will travel

CapnRon47 - I will look into and investigate the options you described. Anything I find out, I will share with you.

There are quite a few good day sails in the sounds. I'm not sure of how some of the town docks faired from Irene though. Adding to the suggestions above, the sail out to Ocracoke is adventurous and worth the effort. It can be done in one day from Belhaven and Bath on a good day. On the Albemarle Sound you have Edenton (excellent town dock), Elizabeth City and you could try to make it out to Manteo.
