My plan is to leave Southport about the 15th of March and travel at an easy pace.
Six or seven hours a day is max. I'm not in a rush and would like to make Annapolis by the first week of April.
I'm looking for volunteer crew (this is not a paid position).
The vertigo episodes are usually not too bad or frequent. It normally takes me an hour or two to recover. It only happened twice on the way here. Once in the Camp Jejune gunnery range (Swansboro to Swan Point) and I just pulled over to the side of the canal and dropped anchor. The second time was the next day and I was lucky enough to get crew from another boat to help me for a few hours.

The Cape Dory is a traditional design and the cabin space is small. Also the dinghy is small and we may need to shuttle with more than on crew.
