North Carolina

Well after 4 days at sea, I arrived in Wrightsville Beach and you can see my track here.
I motored for about 20 hours, when the wind died but often times, the light wind was at night, when I got to sleep. I did 350 nautical miles and averaged 4 knots. Most of the time I was beating into the wind with around 10 knots of breeze so I used my Raymarine autopilot a fair bit.
There are few better experiences than being out of sight of land and watching the sun go down. I am in beautiful Harbour Village Marina just north of Wilmington hopefully for a month or 2 before heading to New England.
