Going Sailing!

Tomorrow Karen and I will start a little sailing trip for a few days of much-needed boat time. Since we bought Tahina last August, we have had very little time to actually just sail places and drop anchor for a day or two and enjoy life. We’ve finally managed to squeeze out a few days. So, we’re going to start by sailing Northeast from Carolina Beach, NC to Cape Lookout. Then a day or two later we plan to sail up to Ocracoke on the Outer Banks for a couple days. Then, we’ll return back to our slip at Carolina Beach.

The weather will be very hot tomorrow, and we’ll have a following wind. The good news is that we’ll probably be flying the spinnaker and having a nice sail. Fortunately, there’s a cool front coming in on Sunday night, and the weather supposed to be very nice the first few days of next week.

I’m hoping for a chance to try out our new VideoRay robotic underwater video camera. If all goes well, I’ll have some cool YouTube videos to share. Maybe I’ll find Blackbeard’s sunken treasure! He used to hang out a lot at Ocracoke.

    I hope you both have a great time!

  2. I am a keelboat sailor/racer, not too familiar with catamarans. How do you fly a spinnaker on a cat? Is it a sprit or a pole chute?

  3. All the best and steady winds to you both luxury sailors ;-)
