tdw Well you are certainly having a good time by the looks of things. Enjoy. Those of us still landlocked are turning greener by the day. Seriously envious.

Cheers mate

Whampoa Aria was nicely tied up to the Oriental town dock this morning. I stopped by but you must have been out and about John. Sorry I missed you. I dropped back by at lunch and you had already departed. I have Whampoa hauled for painting in one of the Oriental yards.

Have a safe journey northward.

Regards, John

PBzeer Many people seem to compare routine to being in a rut. For myself, by having a routine for the day to day, necessary activities, it allows me more freedom for those things outside of the day to day things.

sailaway21 John,
Isn't it amazing how important a routine becomes at sea?

PBzeer Sorry BJ (grin)

Cam - I'll probaby stop in Oriental, then start taking my time and start doing some sightseeing. So don't look for me up that way till week after. I'm not only more comfortable with Aria, but with myself as well. Finally starting to settle into a routine, now that I'm not spending so many nights in marinas.

G'town to the Beaufort Inlet looks like around 170 nm if I hold on course, but, wind being what it is, that probably won't happen. Plus the stretch from off of Cape Fear to Beaufort is fairly shallow, so no big boats. Makes catching a few zzzz's a lot easier.

camaraderie John...I assume you're going to go in at Beaufort and avoid Hatteras.
From there on the ICW you can reach Manteo either by going to Oriental and then down the Nuese River to the Pamlico sound and heading north...sailing if the wind is right....or staying on the ICW up to the Albermarle Sound and taking a hard right (East) which is a bit less direct.
We have a bunch of company over the next week but I will certainly find time for ya and a few cold ones if you make it this way.
Town Dock here is free for 24-hrs (or so) w/o electric and of course the marina has power.
If you're in a rush to get north, we can catch ya on the re-bound.
Either're making great progress and I'll be you are really feeling a whole lot more comfortable on Aria than just a few weeks ago!
It is a pretty long run from G'town into Beaufort singlehanded so rest've been pushing yourself pretty hard!!

PBzeer Cam - I'm at Georgetown for tonight. Weather is looking good for running all the way to Beaufort tomorrow or Monday. Mile 765 of the ICW to Mile 402 in less than a week, and that includes a layover day. Plus, I'm sailing, not motoring!

Only bad part is how far in I had to come, just to turn around and go back, but ... hey, it's not like I have anything else to do
