Currently underway about 30 nautical miles off the east coast of North Carolina heading for Morehead City to anchor. Previously we made it from Annapolis to the Chesapeake Bay entrance in less than 24 hours and averaged about 7.5 knots under sail. The wind was off our starboard aft and gusted up to 27 knots with 5 to 6 foot waves. Not a bad sail but unfortunately it was enough for my Mom. I am sad to lose her so early in the trip.
Due to weather and a possible tropical storm coming up the gulf stream we will be sailing down the east coast to the Bahamas as of right now.
