Which river will you be using to get to Wassaw Sound? The Bull or the Wilmington? What's the draft on your boat? The outlet from the Bull to exit the Sound is shoaled up, you have to steer from the Bull River G1 buoy almost SW along the Colregs Demarcation Line, across the shoals in 10 to 12 water to draw abeam of The Wilmington River R 14 Buoy R 14 on your port about 3/4 mile away, You'll know your in the Wilmington by a water depth of 20-25 ft depth. Do not steer directly for the R 14 from G1, due to a 6 ft shoal area about halfway. When you get abeam of R 14 continue on for about 100 to 200 yards then steer approx. SE to R18, and subsequently on to R 2W and deep water.
