Up and out North Creek at 0700. Continued out Pamlico River on beam reach with wind north, 10kt. Cleared river into Pamlico Sound as wind increased to 15 kt. Tracked SE on broad reach to skirt bombing range. About 9 miles away from land we started south running double reefed in a 3' chop with many white caps... I reckoned Force 5. Yawing and surfing.
Passed by Bay River as the wind tapered down. Ran downwind wing and wing with poles set. Noah a bit seasick due to yawing. Continued south into Neuse River and docked at Oriental at 1900. Went onshore for tea and then anchored up Greens Creek for the night.
Day total 46.5 NMiles, 53.5 SMiles
