OK, I’m going to take advantage of the wi-fi here in Georgetown and post a few of the photos from the first day of this adventure.
On day one, we left the boatyard in Portsmouth Virginia and travelled to Coinjock, North Carolina.
Mileage-wise, this was a fairly short day, but we had lots of bridges to contend with, and as it turned out, a few unexpected delays also.
The first delay came when a catamaran ahead of us managed to actually hit a bridge and break his mast in half.
The police boats were on the scene so fast you’d have thought the catamaran was carrying a cargo of donuts.
This is what he did to his boat. Very expensive mistake. Could have been much worse, but how the heck do you miss seeing a bridge? I mean, sailboat people are proud of that big tall sticking-up thing, and you’d think that watching out for stuff that could whack your sticking-up thing would be second nature to them. Not to this guy I guess.
After we got past this mess, we were on our way.
OK, that’s all for now. I”ll post some more tomorrow if I have a decent connection, but right now, I’m going to it the hay.
