Pamlico 2016 May 7
Oatmeal and hot tea at 0600. Motored on flat water to Harkers Island Bridge, hailed on Channel 13. Jockeyed tight buoys into Core Sound and picked up a soft, cool breeze from the SE. Incredibly beautiful, sunny, tide with me.
North through Middle Sound, broad reaching and running downwind wing in wing at 5 knots. Ran aground in the spoils off Marker 25. Got free and anchored off town of Atlantic for lunch.
