Let's try one! Looking at a June 5-6 overnighter, weather permitting.

It has been suggested that a Washington to Bath trip might be a good first one (not sure the experience of the folks that might want to join in, but this one should work out well for all skills, weather permitting!).

I have never been to Bath, but it looks like a fine destination from the Cruising Guide. I think it's 6 or 8 miles from Washington, another fine place to sail around. We also have the option of tying up at a marina, or anchoring out for the night (or if you want, sail out, and sail back the same day). FYI Washington is off US264 and US17 where the Tar River turns into the Pamlico. I suggest launching out of Wichard's Marina (although is McCotter's a better place Carl Huber???). We'll find some directions if anybody's up for this trip.

I would expect to hook up with some folks and launch around 10 am or so, sail out to our destination, tie up at the town dock, find some place to eat, be tourists, eat some more, find an anchorage, and hang out. Your plan may vary!

Please let me know if you're interested, and we'll make some effort at coordination for the ride over.

Take Care,
