Heading North Again, Finally

Yes, I just finished putting the groceries away. I have romaine, meat, fish and poultry (dark meat only please)

Tomorrow, I have a little brace I must add for the mast fore stay down to the gunnel. Put every thing away and I'm good to go.

I'll leave Saturday, weather and seas will determine route, but right now it looks like outside, but probably popping in to anchor twice before Cape Lookout.

Once home, I will give detailed specs and pictures of the paravanes. I just want to get all the adjustments done first.
In sum, I couldn't be happier.

Safe trip, it's finally starting to warm up a bit up here. The last of my snow melted yesterday and the grass is starting to turn green again.

WOW! 2 nights anchored at Cape Lookout. That is like a shot of spring tonic. Great memories of anchoring and fishing around there.

Take care, and let us know when more pictures are posted.

No, he said "anchor twice before Cape Lookout." Before. Spending two nights at anchor along the way.

Did you find any good restaurants in Savannah? I know you're spoiled by all those New York City fancy eateries but still....

Looking at weather, well go outside tomorrow, but it will be a short, 40nm, day, as the winds should be on my beam.
On Sunday, they will back to the sw, which should make for perfect Krogen seas and if so, will try to do 33 hours.

Cape Lookout is the highest rated anchorage in ActiveCaptain. It's quite difficult to get more than 20 reviews and average 5 stars for an anchorage (usually requires a free dock to get so many 5 stars). It's a huge anchorage with about 40 reviews today. It's located off the Beaufort inlet in North Carolina. There's an offshore hook leading to a beautiful bight. It has a wonderful sweeping lighthouse, pristine beach, and the wild horses are cued every morning to run for you pleasure.

It's an amazing place. We've been there 3 times. I'd like to spend a week there sometime.

Hi Andy,

Cape Lookout lies at the southern end of the North Carolina Outer Banks. There is a wonderful anchorage that lies within the "hook" that is formed by a narrow beach. Some of my adult children best memories are anchoring there, and playing on the expansive beaches and swimming in the shallow waters of the bay.

Thanks. Looks Great. But to get to Pamlico Sound, I must take Adams Creek right?

Correct. You will re-enter the ICW as you go into the port at Morehead City. Cape Lookout is a destination. From the sea buoy at Beaufort Inlet just continuing paralleling the bank to the entrance to the bight. It is about 6 miles or so.

Looks like a great lighthouse, I'm quite a fan of lighthouses.

It is now our "home anchorage", the best place to anchor and stay awhile on all the coastal waters of the USA, and I put it up against the best the Exumas have to offer. We were there over forty nights last year alone with a couple of one week stints. If you are a beachcomber, nothing comes close. Dozens of miles of undeveloped, white sand beaches, clear water, ocean or bay. I was going to post earlier today but had issues with my photo service. Just to give you a taste:

When running Alligator-Pungo canal contact the Alligator River Bridge in advance to find how's the bridge doing. When I was taking my boat north last week the bridge broke down twice in one day. Luckily it didn't take too long for them to fix it.

Dauntless is finally, underway yet again.

Finally, underway yet again.

Passing the COLREGS line in Wassaw Sound, man I've racked up the ocean time

I've deployed the poles and will throw the birds in the water as I get to deeper water.

See my next post from my smart phone for a picture.

I'm not planning on going far today, just about 55 miles NE to Big Bay Ck on the north side of St. Helena Sound. Then I'll anchor.

Wx should be even better tomorrow and into the week, making outside travel a piece of cake.

I'm at Fripp Island on St Helena Sound celebrating my daughter's graduation from USC Beaufort. I'll wave as you pass by. Have a safe trip!
