Congrats, CnC. Remember to update the blog, mate, as I know I'll be checking it... if only to see how you go motorless :p

Fair winds and good sailing to you, mate.

Will you stop at the entrance to the Potomac River on your way down the Bay so you can sell your fiberglass dinghy to me?

Congratulations, and best of luck...

I presume you won't be heading south immediately thereafter, correct?

If you are, be VERY cautious going outside around Hatteras in the late winter/early spring... IMHO, March and April can be potentially the riskiest time of the year out there, some very unpredictable and nasty stuff happens when those violent, tornadic systems that tear up trailer parks from Arkansas to the Carolinas draw a bead on Hatteras...

That's no place to be on an engineless boat that time of year, in my opinion...

The nice thing is, he's not on a schedule so he can hang out in NC until May, if needed so that he can make a safe passage.

It is not correct to say 'good luck' (or you would be required to punch me to reverse the 'curse') so I will say "Fair winds" and

Engineless? That's like rounding the Horn in a Hunter! Can't be done...

You know how I feel bro! May you enjoy warm beer and fair winds!

Enjoy your adventure.

while I am a fair weather, summer sailor, I am still jealous. Git 'er done.
