After Writghtsville beach we went outside to Beaufort, NC. This outside leg easily saves a day or two on the ICW. This was our first outside trip on the way down and it wasn't possible to get the 60 miles done in the daylight in November, but we were able to do it during daylight hours in June.
We had a great sail with the wind behind us all day. The wind really started to pick up as we made our way into the Beaufort channel. I probably should have reefed the jib, but we were having too much fun. Nicole is at the helm here surfing down 6ft seas. That's my girl!
I am going to try to finish the posts of our return trip as time permits. Stay tuned.
